Since 2000, Public Art San Antonio, a division of the Department of Arts & Culture, has coordinated temporary exhibits of portable artwork created by San Antonio artists. The City of San Antonio’s Portable Artworks Collection consists of borrowed, donated and acquired artworks that represent emerging and established San Antonio artists working in all media. This collection increases public awareness and support for San Antonio artists by displaying their artwork in various locations throughout City Hall and other City facilities.
The Department of Arts & Culture hosts an annual open call for artists interested in exhibiting their works as part of this collection. Application and more information are available at www.publicartist.org/pasa. More information about public art is available at the Public Art San Antonio webpage.
