Among the works of the many local artists who’ve contributed to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center’s art collection, meeting delegates will find a variety of cultural expressions that reflect the authentic culture of San Antonio.
“The art collection which brings the voice of San Antonio to the world stage, engages visitors visually and sparks conversations that bring people together,” says Patricia Muzquiz Cantor, interim director for the city of San Antonio Convention & Sports Facilities.
Among the pieces that will have people talking is a Carlos Merida mural created for the 1968 World’s Fair that will greet NCBJ visitors at the convention center’s new West Entry. From the River Level, look up high on the Center’s exterior wall. Another is one of the newest installations, Liquid Crystal, a 30-foot tower of LCD panels connected to motion sensors that allows it to reflect the activity in the new main lobby.
