The Columbus Museum brings American art and regional history to life for communities of the Chattahoochee Valley. 

Art museums often conjure up images of seriousness: quiet white rooms, do-not-touch signs, stanchions. But what happens when art lets loose?

Museum collections come together in a variety of ways. Sometimes through donations. Other times through auctions and acquisitions. But how do curators learn about the artwork and objects they acquire in their collections? Sometimes it is by sheer chance.

Saya Woolfalk: Augmented Visionary Reality Outpost opens October 18 at The Columbus Museum. Recently, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of American Art Jonathan Frederick Walz, Ph.D. sat down with the artist to discuss her creative practice, music, and St. EOM.
