Join Host Committee Chair, Dr. Carlos E. Alvarez-Meraz, in helping the McNay Art Museum present one of the most groundbreaking exhibitions in its history, Transamerica/n: Gender, Identity, Appearance Today, opening June 20, 2019 .


Transformative, transcendent, and trans-historical, Transamerica/n is the country’s first broad survey of artwork from across North America that celebrates and explores the spectrum of gender identity through outward appearance. Your contribution will support this dynamic exhibition—including commissioned artwork from San Antonio-based artists—and make accessible to the community a wonderful and impactful roster of public programs.


Transamerica/n
showcases artists from underrepresented backgrounds in the United States, Mexico, and Canada who are deeply committed to exploring shifting definitions of gender identity and bravely testing the limits of self-expression. Transamerica/n seeks to establish the Museum as a safe community center where all visitors can be their authentic selves, be inspired to dream and grow, make sense of the world, and find their special place in it.
