Looking for a Spark of Creativity? #MYCMA

The Columbus Museum of Art

With winter upon us there are those days you seek  an outing. While you don’t necessarily want to spend the whole day away; a quick trip out is a welcome distraction. Recently I stopped  in the  Columbus Museum of Art. Sundays are free and there is plenty of parking.

The areas are organized by genre. With a well planned traffic flow it’s easy to move through the displays and plenty of room to linger. Each area has an interactive table for patrons to write down their thoughts, try their hand at drawing, etc. There even are Lego Pokemon   scattered throughout the museum. It’s like a Pokemon Go  type of activity, fun to see where these characters are placed. When you spot one snap a picture and post on Social Media with the tag #mycma - a great way to keep the kids engaged! A not to miss display for all ages, is the Lego exhibit.  This incredible cityscape  impressively  detailed will have you in awe as you spot stores, parks, buildings etc - I felt inspired by creativity!

During your visit don’t forget to stop in the café- Schokko Art Cafe we had a quick cold brew coffee and enjoyed the sun streaming in the wall of windows. The Columbus Musuem of Art is a jewel  offering many events, meeting places, special exhibits, a wonderful store and café  a not to miss place!
