Free admission and an always-changing lineup of contemporary art by American and international artists? Check and check. The museum affectionately known as CAM is a non-collecting institution that features approximately six new art exhibitions per year. It’s also known for its many community programs, including summer camps for kids and exhibition competitions for local artists.
CAM is full of surprises, with constantly changing exhibits and hip patrons drawn to its thought-provoking displays.
It’s wide variety of themed events, from “Drink in Art” happy hours on Thursdays to “Stroller Tours and Playdates” on Wednesdays. Note: If you don’t like strollers, avoid Wednesdays.
If you’re looking for something cool and different, or you need something to check out before you see a show at the nearby Sheldon Theatre, Fabulous Fox or Powell Hall - CAM is worth the trip.
Contemporary art is a mixed bag; people often have love-it-or-hate-it reactions. Come with an open mind or don’t come at all.ExploreChillArt & CultureCasualClassesEducationalMuseumGood for GroupsHipsterUnique
