Immersed: Local to Global Art Sensations


Organized in conjunction with the San Antonio Tricentennial celebrations and the 50th anniversary of HemisFair ’68, this exhibition focuses on San Antonio as a place of deep history, local values, and global thinking. Immersive, environmental installations by Yayoi Kusama and Philip Worthington, a film by Andy Warhol, and a new commission by San Antonio-based artist Chris Sauter transform the McNay’s Tobin Exhibition Galleries.
