Director’s Letter Welcome

Dear Member,

Welcome to the website of The Columbus Museum. Here you can find out more about the Museum’s collections of American art and regional history, exhibitions, educational programs, and special events.  I hope that our website is a useful resource for you and you will return often for visits, either virtually or in person.

This spring marks the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into the First World War. Two exhibitions about World War I, From Flying Aces to Army Boots: World War I and the Chattahoochee Valley and The War Room, a site-specific installation of paintings and sculpture by Danielle Frankenthal, will be on view from March 15 through August 27 in the Third Floor Galleries.

Coming in May is Close Up: Cinema Along the River in the Museum’s Legacy Gallery, which spotlights the numerous movie and television productions filmed or set in the Chattahoochee Valley, as well as depictions of the area and the greater Southeastern region in American cinema (May 6, 2017 – April 22, 2018).

The Museum has many educational programs for the spring, as well as Let There Be Art!, our annual art sale and benefit (April 6 – 13). The 10”x10” Art for Education Gallery will return, work by artists from across the nation.  Please plan on joining us for the opening event on the 6th or stopping by the Museum during that week.

Thank you for visiting The Columbus Museum’s website, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon!

Marianne Richter
