Memberships are a vital source of revenue that supports our Free Entry for Everyone Every Day policy! It keeps art supplies stocked, instructors administering free art projects to children, lights shining on our local art, space for people of all ages to creatively express themselves and so much more.  Without support by simple means of a membership, our day to day operations would not be possible.  We hope that you will join and become Art Centered.  Thank you for your support!


The Art Center of Corpus Christi is dedicated to nurturing local and regional arts to serve our diverse community. Admission to the Art Center is free and the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, and family-oriented. This is the place to be Art Centered, a place for learning, exchanging ideas, holding meetings, and exhibiting art.

Artists join for the opportunity to exhibit in our Member’s Gallery, Dimension’s Exhibit, or All Membership Show. Some join to support the diverse culture and unique character the Art Center adds to the region. Others join to connect with the growing art scene. No matter the reason, life is better when it is Art Centered!
