The culinary life of the "Athens of Missouri"

Art and culture in Columbia
Columbia boasts several universities. As is typical of college towns, the city has risen to meet the needs of its professors and student population, and is dotted with museums and cultural events.
The State Historical Society of Missouri puts the state's rich historical treasures on display, including works of local painter Thomas Hart Benton, woodcutter Fred Geary, and masterpieces by John James Audubon. The Museum of Art and Archaeology boasts a wide collection of antiquities, along with medieval, modern, and contemporary art, with changing special exhibits.
The city's culture shines at annual events. The True/False Film Festival takes place in February or March, and originally focused on documentary films. Now the festival includes art and music, and closes with a performance by guest artists.
Meanwhile, the "We Always Swing" Jazz Series puts on live music all summer long, with the 9th Street Summerfest closing the season, with musical luminaries such as Willie Nelson and The Flaming Lips. The Roots N Blues N BBQ in late September lives up to its claim as a celebration of blues music and barbecue.
