Located on the River Walk in San Antonio, the San Antonio Museum of Art has large collections of ancient Mediterranean art, Asian art, and Latin American art.
This summer, SAMA looks back at the Museum’s heady past as the Lone Star Brewery in Still Brewing Art. The exhibition will feature Belle Époque large format brewery posters as well as rare pre‑Prohibition Lone Star Brewery objects, historic photographs, and SAMA site plans dating to 1976 that were used during the brewery’s renovation.
