“Celebrating the link between art & life”
The Contemporary Arts Center–one of the nations's oldest and most celebrated contemporary art institutions–is a non-collecting museum devoted to presenting contemporary art from around the world. The CAC's mission is based on the idea that there is an inextricable link between art and life, and that connections are made through contemporary art. We provide a space for reflection and dialogue, where the public can engage with artists, scholars, and each other around contemporary issues. The CAC is an open cultural forum where people gather to gain exposure to new ideas and where art is a means for people to connect to each other and to the world. Building designed by Zaha Hadid.
Awesome museum. Super unique building as well with great exhibits time after time. The CAC recently became free admission so you can now explore this incredible building as much as you'd like, free of charge!
Really great museum! The building, which I love, was designed by a well-known architect called Zaha Hadid and completed in 2003. The building alone is reason enough to go, there are some pretty cool nooks and crannies, the light comes through in really interesting ways, and just overall a very cool space.
I don't follow too closely the exhibits that come and go but they bring some really interesting things to the city. They also host a bevy of conferences, talks and workshops around the year which are worth checking out.
A great museum with exhibits that rotate every couple of months. The building itself is beautiful and has one of the best gift shops ever!
This is a fantastic museum and venue. Been to a few conferences here and the shows are great. Also, I highly recommend checking out the gift shop.
Awesome museum right in the heart of downtown. Definitely worth going to and spending some time at
Interesting museum in the city. If you're looking to fill a couple hours taking in unusual but visually stimulating modern art exhibits, this is the place for you.
As a venue, the CAC is excellent. It works really well for small conferences or meetups. When it comes to art museum; who know's what you'll find at a contemporary art museum? Sometimes it's great, sometimes not. That said, it's a "sometimes" place and definitely worth a visit.
CAC is awesome! Constantly rotating exhibits really keep this place fresh. Wandering around the massive building can take easily 2 hours but it's 2 hours well spent.
