From its city streets to Texas hill country roads, San Antonio is a kaleidoscope of landscapes. Street Scene: Cities on Stage transports visitors to a number of destinations via stage designs from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts and artworks from the McNay’s Permanent Collection. The exhibition shows how theatre designers create realistic stage settings that challenge and stretch our understanding of urban environments forged from steel, glass, bricks, and mortar. The artworks also offer interpretations of small-town life. Some designs are imaginative, colorful, exciting, and surreal, while others depict more realistic visions of sleepy farm towns.
Street Scene: Cities on Stage explores the range of street scenes artists imagine for performances, so you can experience their architectural versions of verdant villages and creative concrete cities—in just one visit.
Street Scene: Cities on Stage is organized for the McNay Art Museum by R. Scott Blackshire, Ph.D., Curator, The Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts; and Kim Neptune, The Tobin Theatre Arts Fund Assistant Curator.
