In recent years the world of furniture design has been completely transformed. Once a fairly restrictive field in which form tended to follow function, it is today one of the most dynamic of all creative disciplines. Across a wide range of approaches – sometimes powered by new technology, sometimes simply by their imaginations – artists and designers alike are dramatically expanding the possibilities for furniture. This exhibition focuses exclusively on cutting-edge chair forms, including works by Ron Arad, Wendell Castle, Shiro Kuramata, Humberto and Fernando Campana, and Gaetano Pesce, Donald Judd and John Chamberlain; as well as Joris Laarman, whose high-tech and high-concept designs are shown in particular depth.
Supported in part by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

This winter, in an effort to combat or stave off the seasonal darkness, the Pizzuti Collection will install artwork that takes light as its muse and its material. Galleries will be turned over to ideas about a Texas sunset, neon window advertisements, iconic bar signs, and garish flashing messages.
The seven works in the exhibition use light to consider space, to illuminate ideas, and to question perception. Light becomes the medium to translate experiences and make visible what we discern about our world.
Community Day: Celebrate the exhibition LIGHT, featuring artwork that takes light as its muse and its material, at Community Day March 24 from 12:00-5:00 pm at Pizzuti Collection of CMA. Community Day includes free admission plus exhibition tours and family-friendly activities.
