Columbians [Heart] Art

Artists have been leaving their imprint on Columbia since the first settlers rolled into the region. Here in this creative city, you’ll find historical masterpieces and fresh contemporary works. You’d expect to find amazing art in local galleries—and you won’t be disappointed—but in Columbia, art also enhances the town’s public spaces.


July 7, 1879

Missouri lost a great treasure on this day. Artist George Caleb Bingham died in Kansas City.
