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 launching with a Preview Night where the community can view all the artwork in one place at one time before it meets the downtown cityscape.  The public is welcome to attend and meet the artists on September 3, 2015 from 5-7pm at Culture Commons located at 115 Plaza de Armas.

Culture Commons

Culture Commons includes a storefront gallery space along the first and second floors of the newly renovated Plaza de Armas Building as well as a 1,500 square foot Exhibit Hall on the first floor.

Culture Commons is a space designed to showcase various arts and cultural programming as well as serve as a place for the community to interact with artists.  

The Storefront Gallery is located at 115 Plaza de Armas, San Antonio, Texas 78205 and is open during business hours.

Temporary Exhibits

Public Art San Antonio's Temporary Exhibits feature the work of local San Antonio artists in public buildings such as City Hall and the Municipal Plaza Building. The exhibits highlight the diversity of creative talent in San Antonio, including selections of both emerging and established professional artists who have graciously agreed to loan their artwork to contribute to the beautification of our city.

Exhibits rotate twice a year, normally once in the summer and once at the start of each year. For questions or additional information, email us. Artist applications are accepted year-round.
