Okay, I like the restaurant, but it is owned by a friend. So I might be prejudiced. Still, I belong to a Friday lunch group which is picky about where it eats, and we eat there once a month--because everybody likes it. The art center encourages local artists. I belong to the Art Center, donate to it, and I enjoy... More

This weekend, I participated in the Arts Alive Art Festival which was hosted by the Art Center of Corpus Christi. It was very well-organized by the staff and many volunteers. The quality of artists was wonderful---quite a variety and very quality-oriented.

We have returned each visit to Corpus. The selections are excellent, unique and seem to derive from old family recipes. This is not 'fancy' but a comfortable, spacious, easy to get to location next to the boardwalk. Try to leave room for a dessert and do partake in the art shop.

A fabulous local place to see the best in local art. Always a couple of exhibits worth your time. Off of Shoreline Drive. Enjoy the restaurant inside for lunch. You won't be disappointed.

My mom and I have been coming to the Art Center for years. We love artist Kathy Wagner in Studio C! We have bought so many Dichroic Art Jewelry pieces from Kathy over the years and this is always our first stop in town! Every time we go there is always new art in the gallery and everyone is always... More

Clay and pottery classes. Seems to have lots of classes for kids. I go mostly for the juried watercolor shows because I know some of the artists.
