The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's motto is "Always fresh, always free." Located in the museum district, the CAMH is a bit like the edgier, cheaper little sibling of its neighbor the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. There's no permanent collection housed in the strange metallic parallelogram of a building, but there is a fantastic rotating roster of some of the best contemporary works in a variety of media, from the international to the regional.
