The Columbus Museum of Art is currently under construction but advertises that they remain open during the remodel (this according to their website, signs on the door, and the friendly matron at the front desk). I guess that “open” is a relative term. If by open you mean that there is an exhibition of wildlife and animal art running in your lobby, up the stairway and through three small rooms upstairs, then yes, the museum remains open. I have to say, however, that other than two nice Matisse pieces, a Calder watercolor, an assemblage by Deborah Butterfield and a lovely little sculpture garden (where they have one of my favorite Calder sculptures), I felt my visit to the museum was a bit of a waste of time.
Wait to visit the museum until it reopens on January 1, 2011.
