Premier Arts Weekend
This city by the sea hosts Corpus Christi First the first weekend of every month, during which the Friday ArtWalk is the most popular event. Galleries and museums across 18 city blocks stay open until 9 p.m., so travelers can jump from the Art Museum of South Texas—home to a permanent collection of over 1,500 works, many of which hail from Mexico and the Lone Star State—to the Art Center of Corpus Christi, a gallery space housed in a 1941 repurposed USO. Other participants include the Treehouse Art Collective, where local artists showcase works ranging from bright acrylics to hand-molded ceramics, and the edgy Produce Gallery, which also sells music and limited edition sneakers.
