On the edge of the Corpus Christi Bay on North Shoreline Boulevard sits the Art Museum of South Texas, an anchoring part of the vibrant arts community of Corpus Christi. Inside the three-story space, a diverse permanent collection of more than 1,850 works of arts are beautifully displayed. Delve into an afternoon discovering the arts this summer with a trip to AMST, where the arts of the Americas and the Texas region, from paintings, photographs, and sculptures to glass, ceramics, crafts, and large installation pieces, will captivate and surely leave you inspired.

Peruse the Dr. Clotilde “Dr. Cleo” P. Garcia Spanish Colonial Gallery showcasing many Spanish Colonial, pre-Columbian, and contemporary works inspired and influenced by artisans and artists of that time. Beginning May 16 through September 6, find inspiration in Target Texas: Drawn Worlds, featuring the works of eight Texas artists and their connections to their communities, their inspirations, and world view through the genre of drawing. May 22 through August 30, William Wilhelmi: A Crescendo in Clay, adventure through Wilhelmi’s masterful combination of ceramics and references to art history and literature. From rotating exhibitions to a must-see permanent collection, the Art Museum of South Texas is a visual treat.
