CAMMIE Awards, 2020.

Contemporary Art Month (CAM), the annual month-long celebration of San Antonio’s Contemporary Art, has come to a close with the announcement of CAM’s CAMMIE Award winners. Despite the difficulty of continuing the yearly tradition in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, CAM found ways to work around shut downs and social distancing by shifting the submission process online.

Says CAM Executive Director, Roberta “Nina” Hassele: “We faced unprecedented challenges, but the resilience within our arts community is strong, and can be see in the ways in which people adapted quickly to see the CAMMIE Awards to fruition.”

Below are the winning exhibitions:
