The Columbus Museum believes in welcoming our entire community. In order to reach new audiences, we participate in local events and partner with local organizations to bring art making and Museum awareness out into our community. You can find us events around town, leading art making at MCSD after school programs, and more.
Access for the Arts
This program combines gallery experiences with studio activities for adults with early-onset memory loss and their caregivers. Access for the Arts is a partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association.
After School Art
The Columbus Museum partners with Columbus Parks & Recreation Department to offer supplemental art activities to students in the after school programs at Hannan Elementary and Georgetown Elementary.
Designed for youth on the autism spectrum, ART-iculate is a sensory-friendly program that includes time in the galleries as well as art-making. Please note: ART-iculate occurs outside of normal Museum operating hours so registration is strongly recommended.
The Columbus Museum PALS
The Columbus Museum PALS (Pre-K Art & Literacy in Schools) is a new pilot program launching in fall 2019. PALS is designed bridge the art education gap in Georgia Pre-K classrooms at Fox Elementary and Rigdon Road Elementary through art and literacy activities.

Community Art Partners
The Columbus Museum is partnering with the Housing Authority of Columbus to bring art-focused programming to local communities. Participants will attend a six-week series of art-making classes at their housing community and take family field trips to the Museum. This program is generously funded by the grants from the Office of Crime Prevention, the Rotary Club of Columbus, and the Landrum Educational Endowment Fund.
