Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

CAMH was founded in 1948 by a group of seven Houston citizens to present new art and to document its role in modern life through exhibitions, lectures and other activities. The Museum's first exhibitions were presented at various sites throughout the city. The success of these first efforts led in 1950 to the building of a small, professionally equipped facility where ambitious exhibitions of the work of Vincent van Gogh, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Max Ernst, and John Biggers and his students… reflected Houston's receptiveness to new ideas. In 1972, the present facility opened with the controversial exhibition Ten, which featured several artists working in non-traditional media. The Museum continued its commitment to showcasing the newest national and regional art in such exhibitions.
