Year of anniversaries for Coos Art Museum

The year 2024 will mark several anniversaries for the Coos Art Museum (CAM). A fixture of downtown Coos Bay, the CAM has served to foster the Southern Coast’s artistic community and provide arts education opportunities to residents of all ages since 1966. This will also mark the 10th year that the Coquille Tribe has provided sponsorship for the Maritime exhibition. One of the museum’s most popular yearly offerings, the Maritime show, ties art together with the intrinsic nautical culture of the South Coast.
