The food and view from the Art Center cafe is delightful. After lunch you can wander through the galleries and be tempted by offerings from local artists in the gift shop.

First Fridays they have an art show that is worth the visit once a month. Artists are there to discuss their work and there are demos of pottery making. Great value for original art and be sure to visit the artists co-op shop up front.

The layout and the lighting in the museum were comfortable. There was a selection of Andy Warhol prints exhibited. The selection of permanent pieces was varied and interesting. The surface of the walls has a unique texture. Overall, it was a worthwhile visit.

I would say this is more of a place for people who live in Corpus to come see, and be a part of the community here. They have classes and exhibits that are ongoing. The are also part of a monthly arts gallery, and bring in interesting artists. For the general traveler, there are other better things to see on... More

We stumbled upon this art center, which was very well-done with many displays of modern art as well as paintings and photography. It is free to the public with donations encouraged.
