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.

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.

We stopped at the Art Center during an off period but we still found great art pieces and could wander around the area looking at the various pieces. It was a nice surprise when out on our walk along the coastline and coming back from Whataburger.

I took my 6 year old grandson to the Art Center for their Saturday family art sessions. The two of us had a great time! After finishing the selected art session, we wandered the halls and he had me take his picture by each sculpture or picture that liked. I was surprised at his genuine interest in all that was...

Beautiful building and courtyard.They have weddings here because it is so nice.The gallery is spacious and has different sub galleries within it that host various shows.These are always wonderful with lovely receptions.There is a good restaurant and gift shop but the art itself is the main attraction.
