Columbia, S.C. – The Columbia Museum of Art is celebrating a successful 2013 by saying “thank you” to the community for its support by offering FREE museum admission for Richland County and City of Columbia residents between Tuesday, January 21, and Sunday, February 2, 2014. The CMA has enjoyed tremendous success and growth over the last decade in large part because of the sustained public support from Richland County and the City of Columbia. The public investment in the Museum has had a significant economic, educational, and cultural return for all the citizens of our diverse community.

“We are excited by the success of 2013, during which we offered over 800 programs and saw a continuing increase in attendance and tourism from all 46 counties of South Carolina, all 50 states, and 37 countries,” says CMA Executive Director, Karen Brosius. “We want to give back to the community for their support and open our doors to City and County residents to celebrate.”

Residents can enjoy the more than 400 works on view in the CMA collection, an installation of 10 works of African-American life by Orangeburg artist Floyd Gordon, and the Meiji Magic exhibition of imperial Japanese porcelain, as well as free activities for children such as backpacks, family guides, and scavenger hunts. The Museum has also added for the occasion a free movie every day and additional guided tours. The public has the opportunity to meet the artist Floyd Gordon at a free opening reception on Tuesday evening, January 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
