Linda Pace Foundation

Ground was broken Wednesday morning for San Antonio's newest art museum. 

The building was conceived by the late artist and philanthropist Linda Pace, who said it came to her in a dream. Its curious name – Ruby City – is explained by the Linda Pace Foundation's Rick Moore.

"Ruby City was the reflection of Linda's dream where she envisioned an iconic structure that was deep red," Moore said.

And in typical Pace fashion, she planned for the museum to be a memorable structure.

Progress continues to be made on the San Pedro Creek project and now it's reached a noteworthy milestone. That milestone is in hiring Carrie Brown as the project's public art curator.

At Austin’s South By Southwest Film Festival last year, a documentary listed on the schedule caught my eye with its one-word title, “Yarn.”

It’s not often that five year olds get their art displayed in a museum. At the Institute of Texan Cultures, 250 K-12 students from Comal County now have their artwork shown in an exhibit that celebrates the history and heritage of New Braunfels. TPR’s Louisa Jonas reports a lot of work went into the multimedia show.

A couple years ago, artist and illustrator Christoph Niemann felt like he needed to shake things up. "When you do any kind of creative job for a while, you become better ..." he says, "but I think you always become a little bit more predictable."
