Overview
More
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis presents, supports, and celebrates the art of our time. CAM is located in the heart of St. Louis-the Grand Center arts district. Admission to the Museum is free. As a non-collecting institution, CAM presents more than twenty exhibitions each year featuring emerging and established artists from around the region, country, and globe. We showcase art in a full range of media-from painting, drawing, and sculpture to the conceptual, performative, and interactive-filling our museum, both inside and out, in unexpected ways. Each exhibition season offers an entirely new experience.

Doesn't really have a lot of art to see but all pieces on exhibit are pretty solid and worth seeing. Admittance is free and it has an art library on the upper level.

We love contemporary and modern art so we had to visit while on a trip to St Louis. The exhibits currently showing (May 18) were really impressive. Sarah Paulsens work especially was the true highlight. It's a shame that the venue is on the small...More

Struggling to find something unique to drag my teenage boys, we hit this museum on one of its rare free mornings. It had easily accessible street parking. Staff was informative but not as teen friendly as I’d hope. This caters to adults mostly and might...More

As a longtime member of CAMStl, I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the museum’s range of programs. My most recent visit included a stroll through the race car sculptures of Salvatore Scarpitta and the LA artist Tim Youd crouched over a vintage typewriter, “rewriting,”...More

This museum has very interesting exhibits. The museum is located near Grand Center, so it is a convenient place to spend about 30-60 minutes of free time when in the area. Plus, admission is free.

Free. Small. Exhibits change frequently. Irrelevant if you are a contemporary art buff or not, you will be hard pressed to find any real talent in the work exhibited here.
