Introduction to Columbia Arts Guide
Columbia has no shortage of visual and performing arts opportunities. With a variety of galleries, museums, performance venues, and festivals, residents and visitors alike will find plenty to see and do.
Expect to see an array of art at the galleries and museums listed in this guide—painting, photography, ceramics, fiber, sculpture, jewelry, glass, metal and more—made by local and regional artists, as well as those from around the nation and the world. Offerings at all locations change regularly, so visit often.
Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the
Missouri Arts Council, a state agency,
and Columbia’s Convention and Visitors Bureau.
