How have your New Year’s resolutions held up? Here is a place where some of you might actually be able to keep them. If one of your resolutions was to re-connect with the artsy you, or to try and tap into that "right brain" of yours, there’s the Southwest School of Art.
"It’s never too late to be creative," said Southwest’s Drawing and Painting Department Chair Vincent Valdez.
Valdez is encouraging San Antonians to come down and maybe find the rest of who they are.
San Antonio is a city full of murals, but the new one in the Government Hill neighborhood represents something more. San Anto Cultural Arts Center’s Public Art Program Manager John Medina explains how it came about.
"Earlier in the year we were contacted by City Center Health Careers and they wanted us to team up with them to paint the mural and teach it as part of their curriculum," Medina said. "Previous to this they didn’t have an art class."
So what does a mural and art have to do with City Center Heath Careers Charter School?"
The Vogel Gryff Festival, held in Switzerland, could be described as wishful thinking, because January 13th 2014, is most certainly, not remotely or positively anywhere near the end of winter! But since the 13th century, Swiss folk in Basel have enjoyed this fun event that aims to chase away the winter, and also mocks the city elite.
San Antonio’s Jump-Start Performance Co. is making a big move, and it all starts with an unusual party. After having operated out of the Blue Star Complex for 20 years, they’re in the process now of moving.
"Our stage has been taken up and I believe today a crew is dismantling our light grid," said Marketing Director Erik Bosse.
The party’s held as the last event in the Blue Star facility, which Bosse describes as a "big, massive event with music, poetry, theater, dance, video, all sorts and things to do."
