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.


Mar 10, 2017 – Apr 30, 2017
Russell Hill Rogers Galleries I & II | Santikos Building
Free and open to the public

Opening Reception: Fri, Mar 10, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Each March serves as a celebration of contemporary art in San Antonio and, as a part of this celebration, the Contemporary Art Month organization (CAM) invites an established curator from outside of San Antonio each year to give a fresh perspective on the local art scene through copious studio visits and a resulting curated exhibition. This year, the Southwest School of Art is pleased to partner with CAM to present: 2017 CAM Perennial: Reflections on Landscape and Memory, curated by Chris Ingalls (Miami).
