Corita Kent's silkscreens were once compared to Andy Warhol's; her banners and posters were featured at civil rights and anti-war rallies in the 1960s and '70s; she made the covers of Newsweek and The Saturday Evening Post; and she even created a popular postage stamp. Yet today, Kent seems to have fallen through the cracks of art history.

On Thursday, January 22, you're invited to spend an evening strolling the galleries of the Briscoe Western Art Museum, enjoying light refreshments, and learning more about the museum and its special exhibit of student art from across Texas.

It’s been a busy year all around, and that includes art in San Antonio. TPR’s Arts and Culture Reporter Jack Morgan looks back at the year that was.

Stories on arts and culture in the San Antonio area are probably a bigger deal than in most cities. Why? Because they really do matter here. It’s in the city’s collective DNA. Or, as county judge Nelson Wolff puts it:    

“San Antonio is in the middle of a cultural renaissance.”

The city’s Felix Padron said there’s a reason for this renaissance.

You may think the ‘Day of the Dead’ as a celebration around Halloween, but at the Texas A&M Cultural  Arts Center in San Antonio, an exhibit is drawing new attention. I took a tour with its creator. Deborah A. Cortez helps run her family’s Mi Tierra restaurant at Market Square in San Antonio, but she’s also an artist who created this ‘Day of the Dead’ exhibit.

“The exhibit is a story of The Children of the Revolución, which was originally put together by Lionel and Kathy Sosa.”

Bill Fitzgibbons

A new exhibition is opening next month in a national gallery that will feature Texas artists. It’s where that national gallery is that makes this story so fascinating. We spoke to San Antonio artist Bill Fitzgibbons to get the story.

“The National Academy of Art is going to be showing the exhibition called ‘Texas!’  And it opens on Jan. 24.”

And this is in New Delhi, India?

“It’s in New Delhi.”
