Colubus Museum of Art

Small Group Opportunity:

        The Columbus Museum of Art was founded in 1878 and has traditionally focused its collection on American and European art from the Middle Ages to the early modern period.  In recent years the collection has been expanded greatly by acquiring several prominent private collections and has begun to focus on more modern works and on photography.
      Highlights of the collection include splendid works of Picasso, Gris, Degas, Monet, Matisse, Hopper, and Norman Rockwell, whose painting you see at left.  The museum is especially noted for its collection of works of George Bellows, who was a Columbus native.
