Columbia, S.C. – The Columbia Museum of Art announces specially reduced admission pricing for the duration of building renovations, scheduled for completion in the fall of 2018. Museumgoers gain entry for half the regular amount: Adults are now $6, seniors and military $5, and students $2.50. Children six years old and under remain free.

This initiative is partially funded through the Karen Brosius National Medal Fund, established last year to honor Karen Brosius, who served as CMA executive director from 2004 – 2016. The fund benefits CMA programs, exhibitions, and opportunities with dynamic approaches to public service.

“In the years I worked with Karen, I saw firsthand her passion for arts accessibility,” says R. Scott McClelland, president of the CMA board of trustees. “She was a driving force behind our National Medal win and the fact that a third of our programs are free. We thought this was a great chance to honor her dedication and service in a way that benefits our community.

The onset of reduced admission pricing coincided with the opening of the summer exhibition ReTooled: Highlights of the Hechinger Collection, on view Friday, June 2, through Sunday, August 27, 2017. 

“The museum is staying active during renovations, and we want to make it that much easier for people to participate in our full schedule of exhibitions and programs,” says Lynn Robertson, CMA interim director. “Beyond the hammers and drills, we still have plenty to see and do.”
