San Antonio Botanical Garden

The Sacred Art of Altars exhibit is currently at the Bijou Theater through September 28. Sixty artists were given 10-by-14-inch boxes, which each artist used to create an altar.

"Each one is very specifically unique to the artist and their personal spiritual feelings and selections, choices," Zet Baer says.

They are all on display at the Bijou in the Wonderland of the Americas Mall. On September 28th, the public has the get a chance to bid on, and maybe own, one of the custom pieces.

An international evening of dance, music and literature is planned for Wednesday night. Sponsored by Alianza Latinoamericana, the evening starts off with dance--specifically, the Tango. Don't know how to Tango? Josue Vazquez says not a problem.

"We will have a tango lesson--Argentine Tango lesson. My friend Manuel Lobo will be teaching the lesson. We have a large selection of tangos. It will be basic tango for people who never done it. If somebody is there has done it before, we can accommodate them, too."
