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.

Enjoy a leisurely visit to the cool Art Center. Take your time viewing the nicely presented exhibits in this architecturally striking museum on Corpus Christi Bay. Be sure to have lunch or a snack at the museum's café, Hesters overlooking the water.

I grew up in Corpus, and was very excited when the Art Center opened. Always fun to see what shows they offered. The great thing was that, after I married, my husband was accepted to show a few pieces at the Art Center. Love that Corpus has this available.

Can't go wrong stopping by here: NO admission, 100's of pieces of local art/jewelry/pottery for sale, artists everywhere, FREE kids art activity every Saturday, classes year round for all ages and stages. (This is not the art museum.) Citrus Bistro serves lunch during the week-everything fresh and cooked on site including the bread and pie crusts...delicious soup. Beautiful view of... More
