The Artspace is a cultural destination for the Midlands of South Carolina. The adaptive reuse of a 23,000 sq. ft. warehouse in the Historic Congaree Vista, and its renewal as CMFA ArtSpace, broadened the CMFA’s impact on the arts in the community. Civic art groups thrive with shared administrative support and resources. Each season more than 22,000 visitors use CMFA ArtSpace to participate in or experience arts activities ranging in diversity from classical ballet classes and academies, modern dance workshops, children’s opera productions, and Cabaret evenings to West African drummers, salsa summits and Video Productions.
Columbia Music Festival Association is a vital part of the Columbia Arts Community. Through CMFA, its family of affiliates and CMFA ArtSpace… the Artspace has become a destination on the visitor’s map.
