CAM Perennial Exhibition

In pursuit of its mission to raise the national profile of San Antonio contemporary art and artists, each year Contemporary Art Month selects a city to partner with to foster dialogue and opportunities beyond San Antonio. We invite a professional curator from the partnering city to visit San Antonio artists’ studios to choose artists to participate in the CAM Perennial exhibition.

CAM PERENNIAL REFLECTIONS ON LANDSCAPE AND MEMORY

Russell Hill Rogers Galleries I & II | Santikos Building
