As we tumble into December, it's not just the decade that's coming to a close – three major exhibitions at the San Antonio Museum of Art, McNay Art Museum and Witte Museum are also nearing their end. That being said, there's still a whole month to check out some beautiful works of art before they're gone, from paintings and crafts by Victorian masters at SAMA to magical creatures both real and imagined at the Witte. Still need convincing? We've rounded up a sampling of what's on view so you can see just what you're missing.
