Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Columbia Center for Archaeology. The CCA fosters links between faculty and students concerned with the study of the past, materiality, and the relationship between the past and the present. We regularly sponsor lectures and other events that are open to the public.

Call for proposals

Exhibit proposals are requested for the 9th Floor Case, Schermerhorn Extension. The case currently houses work by artist Lucy Mitchell, and is accompanied by a curated exhibit in the same corridor. We aim to replace this exhibit with a new installation in March 2019. Up to $1000 is available toward the cost of installation and an opening reception for the 2019 exhibit.
