Ingenuity Finds a Home Indoors & Out
As ceramists, singers, dancers, poets, historians, naturalists, cowboys, folklorists and more arrived and thrived drawing from the city’s vibrant living history, spaces to serve these creative influencers were carved into the heart of the city. In 2009, the Museum Reach section was built to extend the River Walk and provide a place where San Antonio’s now vibrant creative and natural culture could flourish.
The Museum Reach showcases public art, has a special events stage and features a lock and dam complex for sightseeing barges. Also located here is the San Antonio Museum of Art — an institution housed in a former convent and former brewery, respectively — shaping a compact experience of the best San Antonio’s creative culture has to offer.
