Wow! We were looking for things to do within walking distance of where we were staying, so we wandered on over to the Art Center. Absolutely fell in love with all of the local art and artists on display there. If we had more time, we may have signed up to take a class while visiting. It was very low... More

We visited here because it was free and on the way to the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. We spent about 40-45 minutes touring ourselves around looking at the art by locals. Very low key atmosphere and free. Everyone was friendly. There was a painting class going on and the folks invited us in to watch. We did... More

This was a pleasant surprise. An art center, that provides classes for locals and a place to show (and sell) art work. Plus a nice cafe. Very much enjoyed the visit.

We are all about supporting local artists, so it was really fantastic when we found this place by mistake, while eating at the Whataburger across the street. Then when we discovered online that they have 900 members, I had to see what it was all about. Apparently, this group has been around for more than 40 years, and is now... More

During our recent visit to Corpus Christi we took a walk along the picturesque harbor front. On that walk we noticed the Art Center of Corpus Christi. Once inside we were pleasantly surprised by the multiple galleries and art store. The gallery displays were well designed. We also learned the center provides a variety of classes--something we will try to... More

Okay, I like the restaurant, but it is owned by a friend. So I might be prejudiced. Still, I belong to a Friday lunch group which is picky about where it eats, and we eat there once a month--because everybody likes it. The art center encourages local artists. I belong to the Art Center, donate to it, and I enjoy... More

This weekend, I participated in the Arts Alive Art Festival which was hosted by the Art Center of Corpus Christi. It was very well-organized by the staff and many volunteers. The quality of artists was wonderful---quite a variety and very quality-oriented.
