Six Artists Celebrate the McNay’s 60th Anniversary brings together the work of a half-dozen individuals from San Antonio and the surrounding region, most who have not had their work previously exhibited at the McNay. In the footsteps of Marion Koogler McNay’s support of living artists, the museum continues the tradition the evening of our 60th Anniversary Celebration on January 23, and through the following weekend by featuring contemporary work. Each artist was given a specific space within the Stieren Center’s Tobin Exhibition Galleries in which to present their art, much of which was created specifically for the event, but will be available for public viewing on January 24 and 25.
Rather than impose an overall theme to which to respond, or look for commonalities connecting existing work, this diverse group of artists was selected for each one’s independent spirit and highly personal approach. As a result, the galleries explode with a wide range of images and materials that not only celebrate the McNay’s first sixty years, but anticipate the excitement of years to come.
