Director’s Letter Welcome

Welcome to The Columbus Museum’s website, where you can find out more about the Museum’s collections of American art and regional history, exhibitions, educational programs, and special events.

Our major fall exhibition is And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations, in the third floor galleries. This major exhibition, organized by the Cincinnati Museum, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, and the Women of Color Quilters Network, features the work of more than 50 contemporary textile artists. They use the quilt medium to create story quilts about important moments in history that led to transformations of social justice in the United States and internationally. In conjunction with the exhibition, we have several events of interest, including a performance by the McIntosh County Shouters, a group from McIntosh County, Georgia, who will perform the traditional African American ring shout.  More information about the exhibition and related programs can be found on this website. Thank you to the Cultural Arts Alliance and the Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau for their generous support of And Still We Rise.

One of the most popular programs of the year, the Synovus Fall Festival, returns on Saturday, October 14. This free annual event includes programs and hands-on activities for families, including the popular costume competition. Children will receive a selection of art materials through the Trick or Treat for Art Supplies activity. Please bring a young family member or friend and join us!


We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon!
