Here is a snapshot of just a few of the events in San Antonio and beyond. First let’s stop at the Carver Cultural Center where Teresa Vasquez Romero tells us about Saturday’s concert by Vusi Mahlasela.

 

“He is a South African singer/songwriter and musician and he’s often held as the voice of South Africa. He always has universal messages of freedom and human kindness. He’s actually played with many well-known musicians such as the Dave Matthews Band, Sting, Josh Groban.”

Prolific poet of the Beat age, and Pulitzer-Prize winner, Gary Snyder has spent a lifetime reflecting and observing life both professionally and personally. 

His new book "Nobody Home: writing, buddhism, and living in places" brings his personal reflections to light through a 30-year correspondence with Julia Martin, South African writer and literary scholar.

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.

All of America has homecoming football games, parades, pep rallies and dances, but no place has a tradition quite like the Texas homecoming mum.

Gotham City's Dynamic Duo is coming to the Alamo City. From the 1960s television program "Batman," Adam West and Robin Burt Ward join Ernie Hudson from "Ghostbusters," Danny Trejo from "Machete," and many more celebrities in town for a highly anticipated event among the geek conogscenti.

For fans like Tim Stewart, the Alamo City Comic Con is a big deal.

"I've been a fan of science fiction and comic books all of my life," he said.
