Columbus Museum of Art – Contemporary Collection

While attending the Picasso The Great War Experimentation and Change exhibit early this past June at the Columbus Museum of Art, I had the opportunity to see the new Contemporary wing of the museum. The wing’s grand opening was in the fall of 2015.

The new wing adds over 50,000 square feet to the museum using 1,500 copper panels on the exterior of the addition.  In my humble opinion, here are some of the gems from the contemporary collection.
