Immersed: Local to Global Art Sensations

June 7, 2018 to September 2, 2018

Organized in conjunction with the San Antonio Tricentennial celebrations and the 50th anniversary of HemisFair ’68, this exhibition brings focus to San Antonio as a place of deep history, local values, and global thinking. Presenting immersive, environmental experiences, installations by Yayoi Kusama and Philip Worthington, a film by Andy Warhol, and a new commission by San Antonio-based artist Chris Sauter take over the McNay’s Tobin Exhibition Galleries.
