The All New Exhibition at the Art Museum of South Texas
September 4 - November 29th
This Labor Day Weekend, immerse yourself in art at the all new Target Texas: Drawn Worlds exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas! This exhibition brings together artists that work in a common medium with a variety of approaches. This year's Target Texas offers a change to see artwork created by six Texas artists who depict their “worlds” in graphite. Through drawing and other unique studio practices, these artists depict interior thought, memory, and imagined states of being. Experiencing this work allows viewers to envision answers to the question: what compels artists to make the work they do? 1902 N. Shoreline Blvd.
September 4, 5:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Corpus Christi ArtWalk has gone virtual! This weekend, be sure to check out the amazing Corpus Christi vendors online while in town!
