CAMCC

CAMCC_logo2016_rgbDeadline to Register: February 15, 2016

Now in its 5th year, Contemporary Art Month is a celebration and promotion of contemporary art and artists in Corpus Christi held in the month of March. CAMCC is series of events including art exhibitions in galleries, businesses and public places, art education programs, art happenings and performances. These art events are listed together on the CAMCC website and promoted through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  A map of events will be available at participating businesses.

Contemporary Art Month is a concept started in 1986 by Blue Star Art Space in San Antonio. In 2013, K Space Contemporary started Contemporary Art Month in Corpus Christi. This year, the Art Center of Corpus Christi joins us by hosting Start Here, a kick off exhibition featuring all of the Contemporary Art Month-CC artists.

By placing artwork in area businesses, CAMCC intends to bring art into our everyday lives, bring attention to the exceptional artists and works of art being created in our community, while making one’s usual stops around town a bit more interesting!

We are currently seeking artists and businesses to participate in this city-wide event. It is a cross-promotion vehicle, as well as, a celebration and promotion of the arts.

CAMCC now has a separate website for artist and business registration. For more information,
