About

The mission of the Galveston Arts Center is to promote and support contemporary visual art through exhibitions and educational programming.

Based on the tenet that contemporary art can inspire, engage, provoke and inform, the Galveston Arts Center’s dynamic exhibitions highlight the work of professional artists.

Collaborative education and outreach programs create a public forum to engage diverse audiences in an exploration of thought-provoking ideas that inform contemporary art and our experiences in a complex world. Educational programs introduce and encourage appreciation of contemporary visual art, teach art techniques that facilitate active practice in visual art making, offer exciting ways for visitors to connect meaningfully with the art on view, and make art accessible to diverse populations in our greater community.

"A lot of the work uses imagery from these 1950s/1960s, specifically chauvinist-style cartoons where the masculine character is presented as the main character with all other people around them presented as side characters."
