Columbia Museum of Art Columbia, South Carolina

The Columbia Museum of Art selected M. B. Kahn for their revitalization, expansion, and renovation efforts in 2017. The 60,000 square foot project was completed in 14 months. The project team delivered the Owner with a finished product that exceeded expectations, was on-time and under-budget, and met the vision for a new, vibrant Main Street arts destination in the capital city.

“I can confidently say, it was the sincere and judicious care for the construction and aesthetic results that made [M. B. Kahn] one of the best construction companies I have ever worked alongside,” said Della Watkins, CMA Executive Director.

The museum remained open to visitors and continued to host special events throughout construction. Major project highlights include:

  • Second-floor event space and restrooms
  • Three second-floor collection galleries
  • Second-floor catering kitchen
  • First-floor maker-space art studio
  • Main Street entrance and glass canopy
  • Main lobby area lighting and stairwork
  • Museum gift shop
  • Lower atrium area
  • First-floor reception area
  • First-floor interactive youth space
  • 17 existing collection galleries
  • Two first-floor art studios
  • First-floor catering kitchen
