The Source: What Does VIA's Win Mean? | A Legacy Of Women In San Antonio Art
In the first segment:
A near derailment for the city’s forthcoming streetcar program when Texas attorney general’s office reversed its initial finding saying the city transit corporation couldn’t sell bonds to fund its new transit centers.
Attorney General Gregg Abbott’s argument was that people in San Antonio voted twice against light rail and this is light rail. The city sued and won last week.
We’re talking about the street car system and its recent victory and what comes next with VIA Chief of Public Engagement, and former Congressman, Charlie Gonzalez.
In the second segment:
Sixty years ago this year The McNay Art Museum opened its doors to the public. The 700 painting bequest — including the grounds — have expanded to over 20,000 pieces of art.
Marion Koogler McNay’s legacy is just one in a series of women in the history of the San Antonio’s art world. We take a look at Marion McNay, Linda Pace and others, and the history of women in San Antonio's art scenes.
Joining us to talk Bill Chiego, director at the McNay Art Museum for over 20 years, and Amada Cruz, executive director at Artpace.
