The Art Center of Corpus Christi is a vibrant part of our community. Contributions support exhibitions, educational programs, classes and workshops for adults and youth, summer art camps, community outreach programs as well as building repairs and facility upgrades.

The Art Center relies solely on donations, memberships, fundraising, and matching gifts to continue our mission to nurture and promote local and regional art and artists.
