Art Celebration 2021
The Columbus Museum of Art’s annual Art Celebration took place on Thursday, September 23, with the theme Celebrating the Legacy of American Art. Some 200 guests gathered safely to honor long-time Museum patrons Teckie and Don Shackelford and their extraordinary generosity.
The evening also included the launch of The Shackelford Family George Bellows Center at the Columbus Museum of Art (CMA), made possible with the Shackelford family’s leadership gift, including an endowment for the CMA curator of American art, who will serve as the director of the new Bellows Center.
The event raised more than $500,000, providing important operating support to ensure the ongoing care and conservation of the Museum collection and continued presentation of world-class exhibitions and programs to share with a broad and diverse public.
