Stormwater Studios provides studio space to 10 artists and gallery space to community artists. An early project in revitalization efforts of the InnoVista, Stormwater Studios began as a joint venture of the Columbia Development Corporation and the City of Columbia. It will mature along with the other artists in the area as an arts destination for the City of Columbia.

A unique concept in exhibition space.

At various times during the year, the exhibition area is utilized for shows presented by the Resident Artists of Stormwater Studios. During alternate times, the gallery is available for rent to other artists as a high quality location for local, regional, or national art shows. With new shows coming in regularly, Stormwater Studios plans to present up to 25 different exhibitions a year. We invite you to check our calendar of events.
