    Written by A.R. Gurney
    Directed by John Stillwaggon

    A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog.
    ​​
    Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a rival for his affection and a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

    Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

    Founded in 1731, Mission Concepción remains virtually unchanged since her creation over 250 years ago.  The cruciform construction with twin towers, barrel-vaulted roof and dome ceiling are but a few of the architectural features that made their debut at Concepción in 1755.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

    Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

    The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

    The Japanese Tea Garden reopened with infrastructure rehabilitation to the facility, to include walkways, piping, filtration, wall repairs, and pond sealing. The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

    Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

    The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas.

    Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

    The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

    300 Augusta St, San Antonio, TX 78205, USA

    The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

    Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

    About Villa Finale

    A home standing through a city’s history

    The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

    However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

    The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

    What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

    Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

    Randy began his career as a professional musician in high school when this self-taught guitarist could be found performing electric guitar in professional venues throughout South Texas. In his youth, Cordero experimented with a variety of rock genres from alternative, gothic, skate, and shoegazer to punk rock. A chance performance by the famous flamenco guitarist, Paco de Lucia, ignited Randy’s deep passion for flamenco guitar. Today, Cordero may be seen performing traditional Spanish flamenco guitar with flamenco dance companies all over Texas or in collaboration with Latin-Jazz guitarists creating a unique blend of flamenco-latin jazz music.

      Written by A.R. Gurney
      Directed by John Stillwaggon

      A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog.
      ​​
      Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a rival for his affection and a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

      Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

      Founded in 1731, Mission Concepción remains virtually unchanged since her creation over 250 years ago.  The cruciform construction with twin towers, barrel-vaulted roof and dome ceiling are but a few of the architectural features that made their debut at Concepción in 1755.

      Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

      Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

      Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

      The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

      Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

      The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas.

      Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

      The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

      The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

      Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

      About Villa Finale

      A home standing through a city’s history

      The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

      However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

      The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

      What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

      Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

    Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

    The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

    Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

    The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café.

    The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

    The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

    300 Augusta St, San Antonio, TX 78205, USA

    Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

    Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

    About Villa Finale

    A home standing through a city’s history

    The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

    However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

    The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

    What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

    Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

      Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

      Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

      Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

      The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

      Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

      The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas.

      The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

      The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

      Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

      Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

      Museum History

In 1985, the Museum received the unparalleled collections of Latin American Folk Art formed by former Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller and Robert K. Winn, establishing it at the forefront of American institutions collecting in this area.

      About Villa Finale

      A home standing through a city’s history

      The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

      However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

      The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

      What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

      Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

    Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

    The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

    The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

    The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

    300 Augusta St, San Antonio, TX 78205, USA

    Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

    Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

    The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

    What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

    About Villa Finale

    A home standing through a city’s history

    The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

    However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

    Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

      Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

      Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

      The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

      The Japanese Tea Garden reopened with infrastructure rehabilitation to the facility, to include walkways, piping, filtration, wall repairs, and pond sealing. The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

      Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

      The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas.

      The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

      The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

      Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

      Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

      The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a “work in progress.”  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

      What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former “Central Fire Headquarters,” or Fire Station #1’s, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn’t take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door “Annex”, another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid’s area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!

      About Villa Finale

      A home standing through a city’s history

      The house now known as “Villa Finale” was built by hardware merchant Russel C. Norton in 1876 as a one-story, four room single family residence on what had been Alamo farmlands during the Spanish period. During the time of its original construction, the surrounding King William neighborhood was a desirable location for the city’s largely wealthy German families.

      However, a devastating flood in 1921 changed the neighborhood’s fortunes as the old German families, which had already begun moving away at the beginning of the 20th century, chose homes further away from downtown and the San Antonio River.  Through it all, the house, which took on its Italianate look by 1904, went through a variety of owners reflecting the changes going on throughout the city and region.

      Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

    A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog.

    Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park – or that has found him. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a rival for his affection and a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

    Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

    Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

    The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

    Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

    The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas. View the Jingu House Cafe hours and a complete menu.

    The Japanese Tea Garden is open to the public daily from dawn to dusk and is wheelchair accessible. Additionally, the Jingu House and patio, along with the pavilion and waterfall area are available for weddings, luncheons, or other special events through advance reservation.

    The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

    The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

    Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

    Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

    Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

      Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

      Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

      Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

      The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

      Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

      The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas. View the Jingu House Cafe hours and a complete menu.

      The Japanese Tea Garden is open to the public daily from dawn to dusk and is wheelchair accessible. Additionally, the Jingu House and patio, along with the pavilion and waterfall area are available for weddings, luncheons, or other special events through advance reservation.

      The site now known as The Alamo began its existence as Mission San Antonio de Valero. Founded in 1718 near the headwaters of the San Antonio River, the mission served several purposes.  First, Spain needed settlements to defend against French encroachment into Texas.  Second, the missionary staff of San Antonio would create the loyal population needed to hold Texas by converting local indigenous people into Spanish subjects.

      The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

      300 Augusta St, San Antonio, TX 78205, USA

      Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

      Comprising 96 artworks gathered from private and institutional collections, the retrospective “Alberto Mijangos: 159” spotlights a revered painter who was born in Mexico City but made San Antonio home and left deep impressions on our art community as an educator and gallery director. Organized by San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture and curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann in observance of the Tricentennial, the exhibition draws its title from a number that held symbolic meaning for Mijangos — 1 signaling the beginning, 5 referencing the middle and 9 representing the end of his artistic career. With those milestones as a framework, “159” lays out various chapters in Mijangos’ life, from studies at Mexico’s Academia de San Carlos and the Art Institute of Chicago to his arrival in San Antonio, his acquisition of a resident’s visa and appointment as director of what’s now the Mexican Cultural Institute. During his determined pursuit of the American Dream (which involved several deportations), Mijangos experimented with an array of genres and styles, including traditional portraiture and densely textured figurative abstraction. Among the highlights included in “159” are his amusing odes to Édouard Manet’s 1863 icon Olympia and multiple series inspired by flags, T-shirts and underwear (don’t miss his painting Jasper Johns’ Chones from 2001). Taken as a whole, the impressive show goes above and beyond its mission to “uncover for a broad audience the hidden treasure that is Alberto Mijangos’ oeuvre.

      Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

    Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

    Have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and get some exercise with disc golf fun on your own. Disc golf rules are similar to those used in club golf. The game is played like ball golf using a flying disc and trying to toss it into pole baskets. Like regular golf, it’s a lot harder than it looks! One point is scored each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

    The courses are un-staffed and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. While park hours are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., the courses are not lighted and are suitable for use during daylight hours. Admission is free. Be sure to bring your own discs!

The restored garden features a lush year-round garden and a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall and ponds filled with Koi.

    Members of the Jingu family, which lived and worked in the Garden, in the 1920s, attended a ceremony, along with the descendents of Ray Lambert, the Park Commissioner who conceived of the idea of turning an abandoned rock quarry into a “lily pond,” also attended.

    The Parks Foundation is pursuing its next phase of improvement that will add lighting to the lower garden. The Japanese Tea Garden features areas available for rent, which are ideal for small weddings, a memorial service, as well as an area for large corporate gatherings, not to mention the renovated Jingu House Café. Come visit one of San Antonio’s historical jewels centrally located, just a short distance from downtown. The Jingu House is now open to visitors wishing to enjoy a menu of sandwiches, salads, Asian dishes and a variety of hot and cold teas.

    Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the busiest path of the orange-and-black butterfly is through the center of the United States. The Monarch travels through Midwestern states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois, across the Great Plains of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, onwards through the Texas Hill Country all the way to the state of Michoacán in Mexico. The path of the butterfly also connects the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline where it crosses the Missouri River at the border of the Standing Rock nation to the U.S.-Mexico border, but the butterfly itself is indifferent to these artificial borders and conceptual divisions. Apart from the name of the butterfly, the word “monarchs” has another meaning: Monarch signals an acknowledged ruler that is the head of a state or nation, and with that rule, the independence and freedom to rule; sovereignty. Artists in the exhibition take up this idea to present the perspectives of people native to the Americas.

    The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist loses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an unopened pack of collectible cards. To reinforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.

    Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

      Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.

      Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

      Botanist and high school teacher Ellen Schultz began her goal of starting a museum for the growing city of San Antonio in 1923. She began fundraising to acquire the well-known H.P. Attwater natural history collection the same year. Schultz and other interested local citizens including Lena McAllister, Ethel Drought and Mayor John Tobin formed the San Antonio Museum Association. Schultz organized schoolchildren to raise funds to acquire the Attwater Collection by selling bluebonnets and cakes and doing historical performances of Los Pastores. They raised enough funds and the natural history collection was purchased and installed at Main Avenue High School on October 8, 1923.

    Founded in 1731, Mission Concepción remains virtually unchanged since her creation over 250 years ago.  The cruciform construction with twin towers, barrel-vaulted roof and dome ceiling are but a few of the architectural features that made their debut at Concepción in 1755.

    Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.

    Mission San Francisco de la Espada was moved to the San Antonio River Valley from East Texas in 1731 along with Mission San Juan and Mission Concepción. Originally founded as Mission San Francisco de los Tejas near Augusta, Texas, like the other East Texas missions it was founded to convert the local indigenous tribes to Christianity and to protect the Spanish frontier from French incursions. Today it represents the most complete mission complex of all of the San Antonio Missions. The Espada Acequia has run continuously since at least 1745 when Fray Ortiz described the Espada Acequia and successful farm fields.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of three missions that were moved from East Texas in 1731. First established in 1716 as Mission San José de los Nazonis in present day Nacogdoches County, the mission attempted to convert the Nasoni Indians to Christianity and  protected the boundaries of New Spain from French incursion.  However, the mission failed to thrive and was relocated to a more sustainable position in the San Antonio River Valley. According to Father Ortiz in 1745, the San Antonio River Valley was selected due to the high quality of the arable lands.
