We Are Open!
Established in 2013, the Katy Contemporary Arts Museum is a not-for-profit institution in Katy, Texas, dedicated to presenting the contemporary art of our time to the public.
The Katy Contemporary Arts Museum provides an interchange for visual arts of the present and recent past, presents new directions in art, strives to engage the public and encourages a greater understanding of contemporary art through education programs.
The Katy Contemporary Arts Museum occupies a white concrete building in the heart of Katy's Museum District. The prominent and recognizable building was originally designed and built for the Ray Woods Lumber and Supply Company in 1953 and later housed several other businesses. This building is supposed to have been the very first poured concrete building built in Texas.
We are located on the corner of Avenue B and First Street in downtown Katy - right across from the Katy Railroad Park and Tourist Center.
Admission is FREE.
In 2011 the Katy Culture & Arts Alliance was established by a group originally called the Katy Cultural Council. This alliance was founded to provide the fast growing Katy area with an umbrella organization for the arts. All members of this original council became the alliance's first board of directors. Two years of art events and exhibitions for the Katy area and a growing membership convinced many that a permanent exhibition space was important to the growing community and that art education was vital to cultural development. The availability of the 805 Avenue B building was the best option because of its prime location, immediately across from the Katy's Railroad Park Museum and Tourist Center, with a recognizable design and art deco look, and with easy access to Interstate 10.
Our mission is making tomorrow's history by bringing fundamental cultural change, inspirational aspirations and ideals to the Katy and Fort Bend areas, leaving a legacy of social and cultural transformation.
