Closed Sept. 7 to prepare for October opening celebrations


We’re heading into the final stretch before our new wing opening. In preparation for our Community Grand Opening, presented by PNC Arts Alive on Sunday, October 25,  Columbus Museum of Art will be closed September 7 – October 24. This temporary hiatus allows us to streamline operations, test new systems, and put the finishing touches on our stunningly transformed institution. Thank you for your patience during the long journey that has led to this moment. The public opening of CMA’s new wing will mark the completion of the third and final phase of the Museum’s Art Matters campaign.

The $37.6 million project broke ground August, 2013. It encompasses major renovations to the Ross Wing and lobby area the Museum added in 1974 and the construction of a new wing. These changes will result in a unique meeting and special event complex, as well as new Gallery spaces to showcase the Museum’s permanent collection and expanded space for high-profile traveling exhibitions.
