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.
