Laredo Center of the Arts Reviews
Laredo Center of the Arts Feb 12, 2010
Laredo Center for the Arts is an interesting building located on San Agustin in downtown Laredo. I loved walking through the galleries. Great natural lighting, tall airy ceilings, and interesting ironwork on the doorways.
Most of the artwork on display, I am guessing, are from local artists of Laredo and the surrounding area. There was no information made available for visitors. I am not sure if there was a theme or title for most of the exhibits...
When I first entered the art center I wasn't sure If I should wait for someone or just walk in... I saw a membership prices, but no sign about admissions fee. after a few minutes I decided to just walk around. I finally came across a desk with a couple people sitting behind it, but they just kind of ignored me... I thought that was poor gallery protocol. I didn't need help, but as a visitor and an artist I want to see a more enthusiastic staff. Otherwise I kinda felt like I was intruding.
Even though I wasn't too impress with the staff I am still gonna recommend visiting the Laredo Center of the Arts. Mostly because I really did like the space and it is a source of local art. They do work in promoting appreciation for the arts via student shows and art classes..
PLus it is free so you can't really loose!
