Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, LA. New Orleans Photographer Frank Aymami

Formed in the fall of 1976 by a passionate group of visual artists when the movement to tear down the walls between visual and performing arts was active nationwide, the CAC now celebrates its 40th Anniversary Season as a multidisciplinary arts center that is dedicated to the presentation, production, and promotion of the art of our time.

As a cultural leader, the CAC organizes, presents, and tours curated exhibitions, performances, and programs by local, regional, national, and international artists. It demonstrates proactive local and regional leadership by educating children and adults, cultivating and growing audiences, and initiating and encouraging collaboration among diverse artists, institutions, communities, and supporters.
