Recognize Your Favorite Contemporary Art Month Events with the Cammies

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2014 at 8:02 PM

As another Contemporary Art Month draws to a close, you can cast your votes for your favorite shows online through early Friday morning (sunrise, 7:30 a.m.-ish, to be more precise). The write-in ballot, with quirky categories like "The R. Mutt Award for Novel Mediums" and "I Am Not Spock Award for Doing the Unexpected" is half the fun. The other half of the fun comes during the Awards ceremony on March 28, held in the lovely CHRISpark. Your $15 ticket (proceeds go to CAM 2015) gets you complimentary adult beverages, a ticket for a selection from the Tapa Tapa Food Truck. Here's the link to CAM's online ballot: contemporaryartmonth.com/vote-2014 Need some help jogging your memory? Never fear, here's a selection of our CAM coverage thus far: Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum's Four Exhibits

The interactive component of Manuel Rocha Iturbide’s CAM exhibition “La Tensión Extendida”   Just last weekend, the culmination of Leslie Moody Castro's curatorial adventure opened at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. Regular readers may recall that Moody Castro has been documenting the process of curating the CAM Perennial show for the past several weeks. The resulting exhibition, "Untitled (Public Display)" opened last weekend and featured the work of Christie Blizard and Mark Menjivar (both Current contributors) During that opening in the gallery parking lot, GCAC also debuted the traveling exhibition "La Carpa Guadalupe" that riffs off the old timey Mexican-style tent circuses of yore with participating artists Cruz Ortiz, Chris Sauter, Andy Benavides, Victor and Sarah Pagona and Mat Kubo.
