McNay sneak peak 

Mere hours ago, I walked the grounds of the McNay Art Museum. A few members of the press were allowed for a sneak peak (the Jane and Arthur Stieren Center for Exhibitions is still being worked on, it's set to officially open on June 7) and it was amazing. No artworks were installed yet, McNay director Dr. William J. Chiego informed us that within the next two weeks works would be installed in the Center for Exhibitions.

Stieren Center pierced metal door. The design of this is used throughout the Center, it can even be found on the walkways.

The design is also used as a wall along the stairs down to the floor level.

Sculpture_Gardens
Jean Paul in the Sculpture Gardens, the new outdoor sculpture gardens, the first in South Texas, are divided into three separate outdoor galleries by walls.

In late-May, we'll be taking another stroll inside the Center to see the space finished — complete with art hung and sculptures placed. We'll keep you posted!
