In celebrating five years of operating the Pizzuti Collection, Founders Ron and Ann Pizzuti have announced that as of January 1, 2019, the Pizzuti Collection will be transferred to the Columbus Museum of Art.

The Board of Directors of the Pizzuti Collection and the Board of Trustees of the Columbus Museum of Art have put together a transformation that is intended to secure the collection’s legacy as an “artist-centric” program and elevate the Columbus arts scene.

Ownership of the building at 632 N. Park St. will be transferred, along with a donation of artworks that “capture the essence” of artists featured at the Pizzuti Collection. CMA will also have access to additional works for the foreseeable future.

The CMA Board of Trustees and Executive Director Nannette Maciejunes will assume leadership and operation of the Pizzuti Collection’s exhibitions and programs, which will continue to be presented at the Pizzuti Collection as planned through June 30, 2021.

Pizzuti Collection members will continue to have access to the collection’s exhibitions and will receive half-price admission to the CMA beginning January 1, 2019.

For more information, and to keep up with details on the transfer, visit pizzuticollection.org.
