Ticket Price: Free with Museum admission

Add to Calendar 5/08/2021 11:00 AM 5/08/2021 1:00 PM America/Chicago Jazz in Action with Raul Rene Gonzalez

Join SAMA to kick-off Raul Rene Gonzalez’s three-day artist residency in our Great Hall in honor of our three loans from the Art Bridges Foundation:  

  • Interior with Music, Max Weber, 1915 
  • Bronzeville at Night, Archibald John Motley Jr., 1949 
  • Untitled (Black and White Variation on “Pochade”), Stuart Davis, ca. 1956–1958 

Taking inspiration from these three works of art, Gonzalez will be setting up a temporary studio with the task of painting a jazz-inspired work of art that will be presented formally to the public on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, through an online artist conversation. 

Raul Rene Gonzalez is a local San Antonio artist whose works draw inspiration from personal and trans-cultural experiences. Gonzalez regularly exhibits his artwork regionally and nationally.


 

Pick up a free art-kit filled with a small canvas, acrylics, and paint brushes to use at home! You can even listen to Gonzalez’s jazz playlist.

There will also be a live jazz band hosted outside in our shaded Luby Courtyard.
