The Art Museum of South Texas (AMST) is at the heart of the vibrant arts community of Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend. Sitting on the edge of the Corpus Christi Bay, right along North Shoreline Boulevard are two buildings—each with their own unique history—of gallery space housing a diverse permanent collection of more than 1,900 works of art. Delve into an afternoon discovering the arts this fall with a trip to AMST, where the arts of the Americas and the Texas region—from paintings, photographs, and sculptures of glass, ceramic, and installation pieces—will captivate and inspire you.
An hour, or longer, spent among the galleries is certain to entertain, enlighten, and energize the senses.
AMST is celebrating 50 years on the Corpus Christi Bay this year. The original complex, designed by world-renowned architect Philip Johnson, opened to the public in October of 1972. To honor the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the future, an exciting selection of exhibitions and educational programs have been planned. Whether looking for hands-on family programs, lecturers, artists talks, social opportunities, or deep delves into the study of art, AMST can provide those opportunities.
Beginning October 14, 2022, AMST is delighted to treat visitors to a very special exhibit in honor of the Museum’s 50th anniversary. Pop in and explore the iconic work of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella. Warhol, Johns, and Stella: Revisited is on exhibit from October 14–January 1, 2023. A visit to AMST is also free for the rest of 2022 thanks to H-E-B.
AMST is the fine art institution of the Coastal Bend, welcoming more than 100,00 visitors annually. With rotating exhibitions, a star-studded permanent collection, and breath-taking bay views, the Art Museum of South Texas is truly a diamond in the rough waiting to be discovered by the curious traveler.
