CAM Kickoff Party

Contemporary Art Month (CAM), the beloved, monthlong art bonanza that lends visibility to local artists and promotes the San Antonio art scene to the world, will mark its 33rd run this March, as San Antonio continues its Tricentennial celebrations. CAM began in 1986 as a means to bring the art-loving/art-buying community together with a large and diverse pool of local artists and their work. Over the years, it has evolved into a citywide art buffet. CAM, the name of the event and the nonprofit organization that puts on several special events and hosts a calendar compiling a bevy of March exhibitions, became an independent entity in 2003 and has continued to expand its scope ever since. CAM’s biggest areas of focus are organizing, facilitating and promoting, not event planning. Nevertheless, the organization hosts a few choice events and educational initiatives of its own during local art’s big month. Coinciding with First Friday, this year's official CAM Kickoff Party takes shape at Blue Star Contemporary (where the Tricentennial exhibition "Common Currents" is currently on view) and features music by DJ Novasoul (Labkids) and grub for purchase from Ay Papi’s Puerto Rican food truck.
