    Magdalene by the renowned Ambrosius Benson one of many stellar portraits given by Kress In American art the CMA enjoys extensive holdings in all media In sculpture there is Frederic Remington s classic and still thrilling Bronco Buster in painting Charles Willson Peale s sanguine portrait of our first President George Washington in furniture Duncan Phyfe s elegant sofa and on paper Edward Hopper s mysterious and evocative Night Shadows These works and more serve as prelude to the CMA s growing collection of contemporary art that now features Tom Wesselman Andy Warhol Chuck Close and Sally Mann among many others And there is the CMA s spectacular View of the Seine by the immortal French impressionist Claude Monet the centerpiece of the museum s later European art It is a treasure for our audience to come upon as is the CMA s rich display of decorative arts that includes silver stained glass and an impressive array of Chinese export porcelain To visit the CMA today is to take a journey both sensuous and spiritual through world history by way of the arts a journey that only the most imaginative creations can make possible Download The Collection as a PDF History The Columbia Museum of Art opened to the public on March 23 1950 at its original site the historic Taylor House on the corner of Bull and Senate Streets The Museum was Columbia s premier cultural institution throughout the 1950s and 60s with its art natural history and science museum that included a planetarium During these years the Museum s art collection was enhanced by large additions of Medieval Renaissance and Baroque art from the Kress Foundation of New York that formed the nucleus of an important European collection Modest wings were added to the west and east facades of the building in the 60s to accommodate the growing collection as well as the planetarium During the 70s and 80s the Museum pared down its wider role as a general museum with the deaccession of its natural history collection Faced with expensive care required for the building and the need for growth the Museum pursued a host of initiatives both at its past locale and at a variety of sites all of which proved unfeasible It was widely recognized that significant public money was a key to the institution s future Finally the City visited the idea of moving the Museum to the former Macy s department store located on Main Street The downtown site proposal was attractive to local municipal bodies such as Richland County Council and the Columbia City Council because it simultaneously addressed two public problems the need for expanded public museum facilities and the need to revitalize downtown as the major retail establishments were leaving The Columbia business community supported the site proposal for its commercial opportunities possible increase in property values and potential to attract new visitors downtown The new museum facility on Main Street designed and engineered by Stevens and Wilkinson opened to
