Spotlight

What happens when we look, I mean really look, at art? For young artists (some who might not even know they are artists yet), the experience of a single piece of art can change the whole trajectory of their life and have immeasurable reverberations throughout their subconscious trove of inspiration. For eight years now, the McNay, through its award-winning Spotlight program, has challenged young artists to consider a single piece from its collection, and to create their own work inspired by that piece. This year, for the first time in the program’s history, the results of this creative exchange across the years will be on display for the public. The exhibit features 95 works (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, ceramics, mosaics, and more) from 250 students, all inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s Leaf Motif, No. 2. Want to know what the future of San Antonio art looks like? “Spotlight” is a good place to start.
