Founded in 1999, Alabama Contemporary Art Center is a non-profit contemporary arts center located on Cathedral Square in the heart of Mobile’s historic downtown district.

Over the past 5 years we have served 83,500 people through admissions, classes and workshops for adults, summer camps, children and teen programs, and public conversations, films, and talks.

Alabama Contemporary Art Center reinvents what a contemporary arts organization can be for our time by applying creativity and innovation to the pressing needs of the day. As a pivotal force in contemporary art for the Southeast, we marshal global talent to engage all sectors of the Mobile community in ideas, issues, and interests that matter.

We function as a public forum, convener, and cultural broker by forming strategic alliances with like-minded cultural, social, educational, and civic institutions. Our exhibitions and programs investigate themes and topics of particular relevance to the Gulf Coast while creating a national model for constructive community-building through the arts.

  • I went on a Friday during free admission times. It was a small exhibit and I spent a little over an hour there.
