Hard work and dedication truly do pay off.

Eighteen years ago, the Columbia Museum of Art opened its doors at its current Main Street location. The move from its original site on Bull and Senate Streets was the beginning of Columbia’s revitalization of its downtown. The museum was meant to serve as the cultural anchor on Main Street, and it has served its purpose so well that now, nearly two decades later, it is receiving national recognition.
