The Great Stage of Texas celebrates Texas designers making big theatre. In the exhibition, thirteen contemporary designers share their artwork allowing San Antonio to experience excellence in the theatre arts—set, costume, lighting, and projection design.

Artworks from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts by Jean and Bill Eckart, Robert Wilson, and John Rothgeb—all Texans, as well—are paired with theatre designs by the exhibition’s thirteen featured Texas artists. Artists Carlos Merida, Mary Lee Bendolph, Keith Haring, and Marion Koogler McNay, among many others from the McNay’s permanent collection, meld seamlessly into the exhibition adding context to the creative conversation.

The far reach of San Antonio-based theatre artists is found in the exhibition’s vibrant collection of objects that represent theatre performances seen by audiences across the country – and around the world.
