The San Antonio Botanical Garden continues its Art in the Garden programming with a new sculpture exhibit featuring the work of Rodrigo Garagarza based in Mexico. Garagarza’s passion for sculpture and architecture merge with his mastery of geometry in the series, La Matatena (Jacks). Inspired by jacks from the traditional children’s game, these vibrant, whimsical, and larger-than-life sculptures are on view throughout the Garden until August 2018. The Art of Being exhibit has been made possible in part by a grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts and in partnership with the Art Legacy and Gomez Vazquez International.
Blue Star Contemporary and the San Antonio Botanical Garden are delighted to announce Alyson Shotz as the artist for their 2016-2017 Art in the Garden collaboration. For her yearlong exhibition at the Garden, Brooklyn-based artist Shotz has conceived a newly commissioned large-scale, freestanding steel sculpture, Scattering Screen. It features small mirrored circles that “reflect light and scatter the visible surroundings into thousands of tiny pieces,” per the artist. Sponsored by City of San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development, John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation Fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.
Note: No touching, climbing, or professional photography and reproductions of the artwork permitted.
