A new River Walk art installation went in last week. The piece is called Compass Rose.
“Compass Rose is a 4 ft. by 3 ft. glazed ceramic mosaic that is situated in the geographic center of San Antonio on the River Walk,” said Alex Rubio, the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum’s Artist in Residence for their mosaic program.
As Rubio detailed, the mosaic program mentors high school students that they recruit from art programs all around the city.
“Teaching them studio practicum. Getting them involved in community work, and of course, public art,” Rubio said.
