The Creation of Me DECEMBER 8, 2018 - MARCH 10, 2019

A three-month art project challenged students from Brooks Academy of Science and Engineering to take on the complicated and nuanced theme of identity. The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures has collaborated with Brooks to show the results of this project as the next student exhibit, “The Creation of Me.” Through interviews with parents, grandparents and other family members, students uncovered stories about their heritage and developed an understanding of their places in society. The exercise instilled a sense of pride in their pasts and their families. They discovered and defined who they are and where they come from. Using the dry point with Plexiglas process, students turned a family photo into a work of art. The institute will select from 46 pieces from student participants in grades 9 to 12.

Viva San Antonio: Celebrating our City DECEMBER 8, 2018 - MARCH 31, 2019

UTSA anthropology students have chosen to research tourism’s role in San Antonio as a class project, evaluating its impact on local culture and in the construction of the community’s collective memory. The class studies trends and impact of changes through the Alamo’s evolving role in the city, Fiesta’s emergence as an annual tradition, the construction and expansion of the San Antonio River Walk, HemisFair ’68, and the city’s projected growth. The students contend that the emergence of tourism industry may have created disparities in authenticity, as well as gender and ethnic representation. Institute of Texan Culture 801 E. Cesar E.

Children’s Vegetable Garden Program SEPTEMBER 8 - DECEMBER 15

The Garden is proud to present one of the nation’s oldest youth gardening programs. Children ages 8-13 get their hands-on horticulture with the help of our partner organizations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners. The Children’s Vegetable Garden Program at the San Antonio Botanical Garden is an opportunity for children to grow their own vegetables and ornamental plants with the help of instructors from the Texas A&M AgriLIFE Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners, as well as other volunteer organizations. Each child is allotted a 3.5’x28’ garden plot. Children will have fun growing different types of seeds, vegetables, and ornamental annual flowers. Children can also earn their Junior Master Gardener certification by participating in fun, hands-on activities each week after they have tended their garden. In order to gain the most from the learning experience and to help ensure successful growing, participants are required to attend all sessions (two absences are allowed). Families are welcome to share the gardening experience with their child. A parent or guardian must stay with their child. San Antonio Botanical Garden

Destino San Antonio @ Briscoe SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 - JANUARY 21, 2019

Destino San Antonio presents, for the first time, selections from the Briscoe Museum’s collection of nearly 600 stereographs of San Antonio, dating from the 1860s to 1930. The exhibition is inspired by the structure of the stereograph─ a picture composed of two superposed images that give a three-dimensional effect when viewed with a stereoscope or special glasses. Artist and guest curator Anne Wallace incorporates multiple perspectives on the image and identity of San Antonio during a time of profound transition after the Civil War until the final days of the “frontier,” inviting us to engage with the past and consider the future of our City.
