About the Contemporary Arts Center

The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is a non-profit 501(c)3, volunteer-run, art organization in Las Vegas, Nev., whose mission is to develop and provide a central venue for artists and the general community to learn, network, share, and experience all varieties of artistic and cultural expression. CAC was founded in 1989 by a group of inspired artists, students, and instructors from the UNLV Department of Fine Art to provide a venue for emerging artists to share ideas and concepts as well as exhibition space whose work, at the time, proved too adventurous for the local galleries to show. Today, the CAC has broadened its mission to a wider audience serving Las Vegas and Clark County, while still in the business of promoting new ideas, discourses, and trends in contemporary art. The CAC is dedicated to presenting contemporary art, connecting and educating artists, patrons and the public by sponsoring exhibitions, installations, workshops, lectures, fine-art competitions, and various events.
