Columbia Art Center offers a broad menu of exhibits, tours and special events. These include free monthly Salon Series presentations that feature artists, writers and musicians sharing their craft (co-sponsored by Little Patuxent Review); exhibits featuring local and regional artists in the main and window galleries; and, most recently, the Wilde Reading Series, which explores how the craft of writing can inspire and fuel the imagination in this free monthly series, which is followed by an open mic.
