Discovering the San Antonio Museum of Art
Currently the Culture and Caricature by Miguel Covarrubias are featured. Approximately 140 works of art are augmented by works from Yale University and the Library of Congress. A rare collection of books enhances the display with their great illustrations.
Another exhibit is 28 Chinese and will be present until January 3, 2016, containing the Rubell Collection in Miami. This display of contemporary Chinese artists can be seen throughout six of the galleries.
From November 6, 2015, until February 14, 2016, the Realms of Earth and Sky: Indian Painting from the 15th to the 19th Century exhibition will be featured. These gorgeous forty-three South Asian miniature paintings will span five centuries of travel. The display will not disappoint you.
While you are visiting, please check out the collection of home décor items, jewelry and accessories, books, and many other items. Also, children may find something great to take home too. Maybe one of the learn to draw books will open the door to another artist.
Please exercise courtesy to the beautiful art and view it only with your eyes; no touching because you could damage the oils. Check with the friendly staff as to what is acceptable for taking pictures; they are allowed for personal use as a souvenir only.
