Powerful women warriors dominate the urban environments of Michael Patterson Jr.’s portraits at the McNay. Standing as guardians of memories, Patterson’s female figures resemble superheroes with their powerful body language and swords.  René Paul Barilleaux, Head of Curatorial Affairs, talks with Michael Patterson about his artwork, themes, and references.

Michael Patterson Jr. is featured in the latest Artists Looking at Art (ALA), a series created to salute the vitality of the contemporary art community in the San Antonio area. The Artists Looking at Art series features contemporary San Antonio area artists, including McNay artists and staff members.  

Registration is required for this free event. Space is limited.
