Art Celebration: Celebrating Art, Inspiring Resilience and Hope

Art Celebration 2020
Thursday, October 22, 2020, 6:00 PM

Join us for an elegant evening celebrating the power of art and its role in inspiring resilience and hope. Art Celebration is the Museum’s signature fundraising gala which provides critical operating support to our award winning programs, exhibitions, cherished collections, and access for our diverse community every day. Your support of Art Celebration is more important than ever this year, and we are taking extra precautions, including reduced capacity and the offering of virtual options to ensure a safe gathering this fall.*

This year we are proud to honor Lisa and Jeff Edwards, steadfast champions of the Museum who have been integral to its transformation over the past two decades. Their belief in our capacity to connect art and people, and to be truly welcoming to everyone has been fundamental to the Museum’s extraordinary change and growth. Jeff and Lisa’s visionary leadership helps ensure that the Columbus Museum of Art remains a thriving community asset now and for generations to come. Join us to celebrate and honor their legacy. 

Check back for additional details to be announced soon.

Sponsor packages and the pledge form are now available, with general tickets on sale in September. Questions about the event? Contact Betsy Meacham at 614.629.0328 or Betsy.Meacham@cmaohio.org.

*While we have every intention of celebrating together in October, the world continues to change unexpectedly on a daily basis. The safety of all our guests and staff remains our top priority and as conditions change, there is the possibility the event will need to be entirely virtual.
