Seven institutions along the Broadway corridor have created a collaborative to showcase the art, culture and history available in a tightly-knit area north of downtown.
The multi-level effort was first brainstormed during SA 2020 meetings almost three years ago.
"Well, we’ve been working together for a number of years, meeting and talking about how we could work together more effectively," said Dr. William Chiego, director of the McNay Art Museum.
Ted Siebert, an internationally renowned sand sculptor, is leading a design team in building three massive artworks at the San Antonio Botanical Garden using 24 tons of sand.
The designs will include the Alamo and the Moy Grand Hibiscus flower.
The Moy Hibiscus was first produced at the Botanical Garden in a cross-breed experiment by Dr. Ying Doon Moy, whose colleagues eventually got the hibiscus planted along roads in China.
