About us

As a non-collecting institution, CAM focuses its efforts on featuring local, national and international, well-known and newly established artists from diverse backgrounds, working in all types of media. We feature an ever-changing series of exhibitions in our Main Galleries and in The Front Room.

CAM was founded on the Mississippi riverfront in 1980 by a group of civic, cultural, and educational leaders to bring visual-arts programming and cultural activities into the downtown core. In 2003 CAM moved into new permanent space in midtown St. Louis, an area known as the Grand Center Creative and Cultural District. In this location, the museum has served as a significant partner with other cultural organizations to revitalize and develop the area.

Our mission is to promote meaningful engagement with the most innovative and relevant art being made today. As St. Louis's preeminent forum for interpreting culture through contemporary visual art, we connect our visitors to the dynamic art and ideas of our times. As a gathering place for experiencing contemporary art and culture, we push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and expression.
