The Contemporary Art Society (CAS) brings together Museum Members interested in cultivating knowledge of contemporary art and helping the Museum develop its collection in this field. Programming ranges from private lectures and receptions with curators, artists, and scholars, to offsite visits at other arts institutions in the area. Such events are geared to facilitate an understanding of contemporary art, by revealing current trends in the art world as well as their ongoing impact on the history of art. For almost 30 years, the Contemporary Art Society has brought leading contemporary art and artists to St. Louis, sponsoring more than one hundred Currents exhibitions and contributing to major acquisitions for the permanent collection. I look forward to sharing our exciting program offerings with you!
