The mission of the Art Museum of South Texas is to exhibit, collect and provide educational programs and scholarship related to visual art with particular interests in art of the Americas and of the region.
The Art Museum of South Texas (AMST) is home to a scenic view of the Corpus Christi Bay. Designed by architect Philip Johnson, this three level building has five galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. In 1995, the Museum became affiliated with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
The Museum, which formally opened in 1972, has come to have an international reputation for excellence and design. There is 12,000 square feet of exhibition space and has a growing permanent collection. Approximately 400 pieces are part of the Permanent Collection which spans a wide variety in both style and medium. Emphasis has been placed on developing a comprehensive collection of work by artists associated with the state of Texas. The Collection also has pieces from different artists ranging from California to New York. Selections from the Permanent Collection are featured several times during the year to compliment the touring exhibitions.
In fullfilling its role as a center for educational and cultural enrichment, the Museum annually organizes an extensive program of activities for both adults and youth. The ArtJourneys television show, ArtCade: Hands-On Family Fun interactive center, Sunday Fundays, Lunch Amongst the Masters, Coffee House Series and the Foreign Film Festival are just a few of the educational offerings provided by the Museum.
The Art Museum has a gift shop located on the first floor which offers a variety of gifts and is open during Museum hours.
