Admission

Admission to the galleries is FREE thanks to the Johnson Foundation, The 50 and additional support from Macy's.

Annual memberships start at $45 ($25 Educators, Seniors & Students).
AAA, ArtsPass, Armed Forces Tickets Association and other discounts apply.

The Contemporary Arts Center is a non-collecting institution. Without a permanent collection, all exhibitions on view are temporary and ever-changing. Although from time to time we might host exhibitions that contain some mature content, the UnMuseum is a consistent, family-friendly space that is always open and suitable for all audiences at all times. There truly is something for everyone at the CAC. We encourage anyone who has questions about the exhibitions currently on view, to call 513.345.8400 for more information.
