Hyperallergenic San ANotnio Art Review

Rackstraw Downes, Hyperallergic, November 1, 2011

The contemporary art center has been in existence since 1986 and
it began with monthly art events that have turned into a fourroomed
exhibition space and a monthly contemporary art walk
(CAM) that collaborates with the local McNay Museum and most
other San Antonio art spaces. With the legacy of being the longest
standing contemporary art center in San Antonio comes a strong
connection with its local arts community. The space has helped
revitalize its surrounding neighborhoods, King William and South
Town, and as a result its street corners have chic bars and
restaurants though they maintain the eclectic “Old West meets
Spanish colonial” look-and-feel typical of San Antonio.
