About CMAD

Columbus Museum of Art & Design is a volunteer-led granting organization that supports and works with artists, designers, and other organizations to bring unique projects to the Columbus community.  Over the past year CMAD has created a more focused approach of being a funder of engaging art rather than a direct creator or curator.  The grant process introduced in 2019 is intended to be repeated twice yearly to ensure new art experiences are regularly available to the residents of Columbus and surrounding areas.  


Columbus Museum of Art & Design enriches and engages the community through public visual art and design experiences.
