The Columbus Museum of Art doesn’t feature the regular stark white cubes of other contemporary galleries, and the walls are traditionally decorated with walls of various colors. Gallery walls are adorned with paintings hung in the old ‘salon’ style with walls covered in paintings rather than spaced apart in single rows.
The Columbus Museum of Art is home to a collection of art from around the world, including late 19th and early 20th-century American and modern European works of art, contemporary art, folk art, glass, and photography. Highlights of the Museum’s permanent collection works by renowned artists such as Matisse, Cézanne, Ingres, Boucher, Monet, Edward Hopper and Norman Rockwell, and early Cubist paintings by Juan Gris and Picasso. Columbus native, George Bellows also features in the Museum with a substantial collection of paintings, as well as an extensive photography collection with works by Eugène Atget and Bernice Abbott.
The Museum also features a range of temporary and traveling exhibitions and shows, such as ‘Renoir's Women,' an exhibit showcasing more than 30 works by the Impressionist master, and a display of glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly. An outdoor sculpture gallery features a variety of large sculptures and artworks, including a reclining figure by Henry Moore at the entrance to the Museum.
