Miss CAM Antonio, your crown has arrived
Ladies… gentlemen… girls and boys… it’s nearly Contemporary Art Month, and we just have one question for you: As Miss CAM Antonio, how would you promote contemporary art in San Antonio? If you love CAM (and pageantry), you have TWO DAYS to respond in the form of words, video, photos, or any other medium that can fit into a wall post on the Miss CAM Antonio Facebook page. (See contest rules and details here.) Finalists will be determined by the number of likes each contestant’s post receives—the top four who receive the most likes will proceed to the finalist round, judged by a panel of CAM and Blue Star Art members.
On Thursday, March 1, the winner will be honored in a coronation ceremony at Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, with this handmade crown—“Functional on the outside, glamorous on the inside, and fantastic all around!”—designed by artist (and IAIR 99.3 resident) Chris Sauter.
Artpace will continue the festivities the following day with a special edition of Taco Friday: CAM Kickoff. Celebrate with us and our Taco Truck-in-Residence, which pulls up to the courtyard at noon and takes lunch orders until 2pm (cash only). We will also have 10-minute Tours of our exhibitions at 12:30 & 1pm, and a super fun taco-making creative project with local artist Kimberly Aubuchon. And music! We will have awesome music, featuring DJ Steven Lee Moya. (You and your dancing feet may know him as the resident DJ at Artpace Alliance vendor Ocho at The Havana.)
And maybe… just maybe… if we’re lucky, the newly crowned Miss CAM Antonio will grace us with her royal presence at Taco Friday, beginning his or her reign with all the beauty and tacos befitting a true queen.
