Located near Grand Center, the Contemporary Art Museum provides a unique artistic experience for the art lovers. The architecture of the building is loft-like with winding staircases, polished cement floors, and a sterile appearance, complete with white walls and straight lines that accentuate modern appeal. Exhibits on the floor are often representative of impressionistic, abstract and unusual creative feats. Most of the displays have a socially relevant story behind them. Gallery openings are always fun as the featured musicians and hor's d' oeuvres can be as otherworldly as the exhibits themselves. Make a trip to visit the museum or schedule a group tour.
