9 December 2016 – 9 April 2017

Four refugee families tell their stories about coming to San Antonio. Their accounts describe the conditions that caused them to flee their native countries, and how they have adapted to their new homes.

The families profiled in the exhibit have come to Texas from Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. The exhibit will recount the circumstances of the refugee process, such as minimal luggage, a plastic bag containing the family’s vital records, and samples of the necessities and mementos they chose to bring with them on the trip.

Texas is home to more than two dozen intricately painted 19th century churches built by immigrants from Germany, the former Czechoslovakia, Austria, Poland, France, Spain, Mexico, and beyond. Using technology developed for NASA’s Mars Rovers, large-scale Gigapan photographs of the painted churches of Texas reveal astounding details along with our state’s rich history of immigrant artistry. Featuring images by Jim and Jane Whitcomb.

 

1000 Parks and a Line in the Sky
21 October – 16 April 2017

“1000 Parks and a Line in the Sky: Broadway, Avenue of the Future,” is a design vision by Antonio Petrov, UTSA assistant professor of architecture, and the “think/do-tank” he has established in the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning. The exhibit features a 50-foot-long model of Broadway, a street that has the potential to become San Antonio’s great urban avenue.
