The CAC is located in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District at 900 Camp street (1 block from Lee Circle, between Andrew Higgins Drive and St. Joseph Street). We are 5 blocks from the Convention Center and 9 blocks form the French Quarter.

The Contemporary Arts Center ranks as one of New Orleans' most unique spaces for the ultimate in private entertaining and celebration. The atrium, galleries, theaters, and warehouses combine to offer unlimited entertainment options.

For information about our Facility Rental program, and to request a proposal, please contact Emmeline Johnston, Associate Director of Hospitality at ejohnston@cacno.org.



Our 30,000 square feet of event space is a mixture of turn-of-the century warehouse spaces, and the award-winning architecture of our galleries, atrium and theaters. We offer the best of both aesthetic worlds—a 'blank canvas' in our warehouse to create custom look from scratch, as well as beautiful and contemporary visual art exhibitions in our striking galleries.
