Public Art

Special Projects


X Marks the Art is an initiative to activate underutilized and vacant downtown properties by introducing new, creative, dynamic installations and artistic happenings in downtown San Antonio. It sprang from the desire to create a downtown environment rich in opportunities for locals and visitors alike to participate in engaging cultural activities without needing to leave the heart of the City Center. 

Projects have included installations in vacant storefronts and will include other types of activation of underutilized spaces including creative events and smaller urban art interventions.  

RESYMBOL is the newest installment now being featured on The E (VIA's new free downtown circulator) where the community can view all the artwork along the line.  Participating artists include Ricky Armendariz, Waddy Armstrong, Elizabeth Carrington, Paula Cox, Michael Menchaca, Ethel Shipton, Robert Tatum, Louis Vega Trevino.
