WHO WE ARE The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is a multi-disciplinary contemporary arts center, financially stable and professionally managed, which is dedicated to the presentation, production, and promotion of the art of our time. It expresses its mission by organizing world class curated exhibitions; through a multi-disciplinary schedule of live performances and public programs; and by educating and enlarging audiences for the arts while encouraging collaboration among diverse stakeholders composed of artists, institutions, communities, and supporters throughout the world.
The CAC was formed in the fall of 1976 as a non-collecting organization by a passionate group of artists when the prescient movement to tear down the aesthetic barriers between the performing and visual arts was active nationwide. Housed in a four-story, 80,000 square foot building with two adjacent 10,000 square foot warehouses the CAC boasts among its many physical assets a 210 seat flexible theater as well as 11,000 square feet of exhibition spaces.
