CMA values the role artists play to imagine, question, connect and explore. This summer, it’s your turn to think like an artist and experience the museum in a new way. Sample a variety of programs, performances, food and drink as CMA partners with local artists and creative producers to generate a lineup of engaging opportunities. Try yoga and meditation in the galleries, dabble in Open Studio Happy Hour with a cash bar, join a special docent-led tour of featured exhibitions, and experience special projects by featured local artists as they take over the museum to create interactive installations and performances. Available Light Theatre will be the first artist-in-residence for the entire summer series as they workshop and create Don’t Wait Columbus, their upcoming stage production by, for, and about the people of Columbus. Admission for nonmembers is pay what you want, admission for members is free. Some events may require the purchase of an add-on ticket.
