The San Antonio River Walk now has an exciting new cultural destination – The River Walk Public Art Garden. This outdoor museum showcases permanent and rotating installations for visitors and locals to enjoy.
Once complete, the Garden will provide a full public art experience, including free-standing sculptures, wall-mounted art installations and informational displays. It will serve as an introduction and temporary home to some art works which will later be moved to their permanent homes in every part of San Antonio.
Currently on view in the temporary spaces are pieces from Sebastian in San Antonio: 50+Years 20+ Locations 100+ Works. Permanent artworks on display include mosaic murals created by renowned Mexican artists Juan O' Gorman and Carlos Merida for the 1968 World's Fair.
This is just Phase I of this project as the entire Garden is scheduled for completion in 2021. Located near the Henry B. González Convention Center, The River Walk Public Art Garden is accessible via sidewalk entrances off Commerce and Market Streets and from the River Walk.
