You shouldn't have to swim through a sewer to get to dessert. Sad that perverted minds in art are set on deceiving and defiling all those around in the name of art. Shame on Houston for allowing perverted acts in Disney videos shown at the Museum. Sorry - this is perversion, not art.

We visited the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston to see the "Old Weird America" exhibit. I am an artist that comes from a long line of artists, so I expected funky, creative, controversial and intellectually stimulating. What I did NOT expect was the obscenity. Since when is p0rn shown publically? I'm not talking about cheribs wearing fig leaves or the Madonna's bosom. I'm talking about Walt Disney's seven dwarves performing indecent acts on Snow White. There were actual cartoon like videos of characters having s3xual intercourse. No restrictions were placed on entrance. No warning on the actual exhibit that the contents might possibly inappropriate for public viewing. (There was a small sign at the front door warning that some exhibits had "powerful" images and visitors might want to view them before or with younger visitors.) Nothing about needing to take little junior to counseling because some "artist" gets his or her jollies by forcing voyeurism on unsuspecting visitors. Come on, it's time to get off the snobbish artistic high horses and face reality...p0rn is p0rn. If If you want to show it, then check ID's at the door and advertise it. Don't pretend it's art and try to sneak it in under the pretense of elitism. The Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston aught to be ashamed.

Pros: The exhibits are not permanent and will rotate out.

Cons: The judgement of exhibitors is questionable.

If you come to Houston, The Contemporary Arts museum a place to see in Houston. the art exhibited is diverse and awe-inspiring. Though free for admission, the museum is not at all shabby. It is great in the group tour and the gift shop is an exhibit of its own. Located in the Montrose area, it is very easy to get to from anywhere in Houston.

This is one of my favorite museums in Houston. It is free, but donations are accepted. There is always something in here that you probably would not have imagined before. It is a really great experience. They also have a really fun gift shop. I had lived in houston for about two years before venturing out to this museum and I am so sorry I waited that long. Go go go! It is such a neat space which really complements the art. Be sure to go downstairs and don't miss the shop and a whole other display area.

You just never know what you might see when you walk into the CAM, and for free! (or a donation, come on, supporting the arts is good for your karma) There are often mixed media exhibits, and usually something different upstairs than downstairs. The gift shop may be overpriced, but you can find some of the most unique items in town. You will definitely see something you've never thought of before, good for your grey matter.
