Columbus Museum offering free admission
Throughout January, the Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) is presenting free general admission on Saturdays, as a result of donations by a museum patron and the CMA Council.
“I believe we are all searching for ways to connect and support each other during these difficult times,” said Nannette Maciejunes, executive director of CMA. “Our creative Columbus-area philanthropists found a unique way to give back during the pandemic, and we are honored to be able to offer this remarkable gift to the community in a time when art, joy and beauty are so important.”
These free Saturdays are combined with CMA’s on
which is part of a larger Free for the Future initiative to provide free access on Sundays for the next five years. The Free Sundays program also resulted from donations to the museum.
Free general admission includes the 2020 Greater Columbus Arts Council Visual Awards Exhibition as well as two new installations from the museum’s permanent collection, including a contemporary glass presentation featuring Christopher Reese’s “Sunflower.” The exhibition “Raggin’ On: The Art of Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson’s House and Journals” is open with a special admission surcharge of $8. CMA’s annual exhibition, “Think Outside the Brick,” celebrating the creative potential of LEGO bricks, has been postponed to April 2021.
