Contemporary Art Month (CAM) isn't letting COVID-19 put a dent in its style.
As event organizers all over San Antonio slammed the pause button
over the weekend, CAM worked up a clever solution help folks still be able to look at the many scrapped art openings.
In a statement released on Saturday, CAM organizers requested San Antonio artists and galleries share their planned exhibitions in the form of virtual tours so they can be enjoyed by art aficionados from the safety and comfort of their own homes. CAM offered to boost their signal by sharing them on its Facebook
Anyone with art to share need only tag CAM — whose Instagram handle is @contemporaryartmonthsa — in their posts.
So far, CAM has shared two virtual tours on its Facebook
page: a walk-through

of "Wildflowers" at the Mexican Cultural Institute by Jesus Toro Martinez.
While the CAMMIE Awards Ceremony has been cancelled, this year's winners will still be announced online. For judging consideration, CAM organizers have requested that either three representative images from solo exhibitions or a single image representing each artist in a group exhibition be submitted via email to email@example.com
Locals who virtually peruse this month's exhibitions can vote for the People's Choice CAMMIE online
