Note: This event has a $10 entry fee to benefit Contemporary Art Month.

Join us for a fun evening at CHRISpark for Contemporary Art Month's annual closing party--now christened the CAM Perennial Party! We are celebrating new beginnings: the first CAM to be held in March, our new website, CAM's perennial nature, and most importantly, YOU, all the artists who make San Antonio a vibrant and growing cultural landscape.

For the event, Kelly O'Connor has curated an exhibition from the Linda Pace Foundation's collection, featuring rarely-seen work by an international group of respected contemporary artists, including several San Antonio-based artists. We have many fun plans for the evening up our sleeves, including bringing back the CAMMY Awards to showcase the artists and work that stood out during the month, and a performance by the always interesting Buttercup!   Food will be provided by Arugula, Tim the Girl, Friendly Spot, and Filling Station, beer by Freetail Brewery, and vodka by Hudson Ferus Vodka!  Please find yourself an orange top hat (or an orange hat of some kind!), and help us bring CAM 2010 to a close. 

The CAMMY Awards honors the artists and recognizes that they are the reason for the season.  The CAMMYS feature self-selected award categories by local arts organizations including the San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs, UTSA President's Office, San Antonio Museum of Art, the McNay, and others.  People's Choice, Artists' Choice, Critics' Choice, and Patrons' Award are also on the bill-- stay tuned to the CAM website to find out how you can cast your own vote!

Our heartfelt thanks to the Linda Pace Foundation and CHRISpark for graciously hosting our event.  CHRISpark is a one-acre public park adjacent to the Linda Pace Foundation offices. The park features lush foliage, inviting walkways, areas of repose, sites of play and encounters with contemporary art. Maintained by the Linda Pace Foundation, the park celebrates the life of Linda’s son Chris with examples of nature’s beauty and artistic moments.  Contact Chrispark or the Linda Pace Foundation at, or 210-226-6663 x 4
