April 18 - June 28, 2015
The San Antonio Museum of Art is pleased to present the exhibition The Three Worlds of José Arpa y Perea: Spain, Mexico, and San Antonio on view April 18 through June 28 in the Special Exhibitions Gallery. More than twenty works will be on view from local public and private collections including the Witte Museum, McNay Art Museum, and San Antonio Art League Museum.
The San Antonio Museum of Art will exhibit Nelson Rockefeller’s Picassos: Tapestries Commissioned for Kykuit December 20, 2014-March 8, 2015. This is the only time that so many of the commissioned Picasso tapestries (fourteen of eighteen) have been exhibited together outside of Kykuit, the Rockefeller family estate in Westchester County, NY, and property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
For the next year, the Museum’s popular free Sunday hours,10 a.m. to noon, will be supported by Lewis Energy Group.
The Museum’s Yogini has returned from her year away where she was the star of the Smithsonian’s exhibition Yoga: The Art of Transformation. The exhibition originated at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Washington, D.C. in October 2013 and traveled to the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tracing the history of yoga over 2,000 years, Yoga drew acclaim in The Wall Street Journal; Pubic Radio, PRI; The New York Times; and The New York Review of Books, in which Yogini was frequently called out as a highlight.
