“Great venue for local art”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Art Center of Corpus Christi displays and sells the artwork produced by its members. In addition they sponsor and provide workshops and classes for artists of all ages and abilities. There are many talented artists in the area and this is a great place to observe and purchase their work. The Citrus Bistro inside the Art Center offers delicious meals with a great view of the Corpus Christi marina and the waterfront.

“Peaceful & beautiful”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I came here with my little brother when we were living in Corpus & it was better then we thought, we were both still young & in high school so you figured people would have been telling us "excuse me, please dont touch" or "where are your parents?" We always roam downtown on foot cuz we lived pretty close, but no one was stuck up there. Every one was very nice & let us explore the art work, & we went out torwards the back & up those white stairs & my goodness was the view gorgeous. Plus it was nice & windy so it was a great day & not to mention the cute little park in the front with the status & little pond, we loved it & went back multiple times. So if you like art & your in Corpus Christi, you should definitely check this place out.

“Art Center of CC”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I grew up in Corpus, and was very excited when the Art Center opened. Always fun to see what shows they offered. The great thing was that, after I married, my husband was accepted to show a few pieces at the Art Center. Love that Corpus has this available.

“Great gift shop”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Loved this place. Gift shop had a wonderful selection of handmade jewelry that I couldn't resist. Very nice. Enjoyed viewing works of local artist in the gallery as well. Nice bistro on site that looks over the bay.

“Worth checking out”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I liked the art displayed, it was from local artist. I think the concept of being able to take an art class in such a beautiful setting is great.
