Columbus Museum of Art opens West Garden

. June 28, 2012 . 0 Comments

The Columbus Museum of Art, in partnership with the City of Columbus and Columbus Recreation and Parks, opened its new West Garden in a special ceremony on June 12. The completion of this new, public green space marks another accomplishment for CMA’s Art Matters endowment and capital campaign, which, to date, has raised $55.5 million of the campaign’s $90 million goal. The final phase of the project will begin in Spring 2013 when CMA breaks ground on its new wing.

The garden, designed by MSI Design, an award-winning planning, urban design, landscape architecture and entertainment design firm with offices in Ohio, Florida and California, will be a gateway entry experience to the Museum and includes an ADA accessible walkway from the street to the entrance. The garden will provide a safe drop-off point for school and group tours and will be the sole ADA accessible entrance to the Museum during the renovation of the Museum’s 1970s addition and construction of its new wing. The site will be free and accessible to the general public during regular Museum hours.
