Description:

Leading the transformation of New Orleans' downtown Warehouse District into the vibrant cultural hub it is today is the Contemporary Arts Center. Since 1976, the center has been the Warehouse Arts Distric's focal point and a home to bold experiments in painting, theatre, music, performance art, dance, photography, video, sculpture and more - all celebrating the art of now.

The center boasts 30,000 square feet of turn-of-the-century warehouse spaces, including the award-winning architecture of our sleek modern galleries, atrium, theaters and studios. Renovated in 1990, the building (a historic 1905 warehouse) mixes the timelessness of New Orleans' historic architecture with contemporary material, open spaces, and site-specific works by local and internationally known artists.

Multi-disciplinary programming, presented year-round, include world-class visual arts exhibitions, cutting edge performing arts shows, unique education programs and fabulously festive celebrations.

Rotating visual arts exhibitions, spotlighting unique and eclectic works in all mediums by local, national and internationally renowned artists, are displayed in a 10,000+ square foot space, illuminated with natural light. Performances range from urban dance theatre to legendary jazz master series to avant-garde classical and everything in between. The CAC's educational programming delights the young and young at heart with a children's gallery, creative art workshops, summer arts camp, field trips, and a variety of lecture series and learning programs.

And it's easy to kick up your heels at the CAC's fun special events, including two of the largest art happenings and outdoor celebrations in New Orleans, NOADA's White Linen Night (always the first Saturday in August) and Art for Art' Sake (always the first Saturday in October). Plus huge parties like SweetArts and Bourbon & Burlesque add a touch of debauchery and mystery to the traditional arts benefit.

The CAC is also a wonderful venue to rent for a wide range of private and public events, for as little as 10 guests, and as high as 3,500 guests.
