CMA Fun for All (Plus, your Mother’s Day Prep Sheet)

As you are looking for ways to re-enter the social scene, Columbus Museum of Art offers BAM Thursdays. Stop by to enjoy amazing art, music and fresh libations. The event runs from 5-9 p.m. And, on the first Thursday of the month, enjoy a featured live artist from 6-8 p.m.

Held in the garden space, have fun outside or at limited seating in Schokko Cafe. Tables are available on a first come, first served basis. Masks are required when you are not eating or drinking.

Also, Moms love the Museum. So, consider celebrating your mom (or encouraging your family to celebrate you) at CMA on Mother’s Day, May 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dine at Schokko Cafe (reservations suggested); take in pop-up performances by Columbus Modern Dance Company; shop for gifts in the Museum store; or grab an Experience Pack with a flower pin, a custom cell phone tour and more.
