Residencies and Exhibtions
Artpace encourages artists to take bold risks which result in new directions for their artwork, often attracting international recognition. From Lu Chunsheng’s first feature-length film to the thousands of copper butterflies created in Margarita Cabrera’s maquiladora, Artpace’s studios are home to the most innovative art of our time. With your support, we can continue to give artists the resources to create the most significant work of their careers.
The International Artist-in-Residence program is made possible by the Linda Pace Foundation; the City of San Antonio’s Department for Culture & Creative Development; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the National Endowment for the Arts; and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts with additional support from donors to Artpace’s Linda Pace Memorial Fund.

Annual Artpace Happening: Shanghai Swing
April 12, 2014
Each year, Artpace presents its Happening, a creative twist on a gala celebration benefitting the non-profit’s renowned contemporary art programs. Please consider joining Co-Chairs Lori Dunlap & Lora Reynolds for the next edition of this popular event, Shanghai Swing: Artpace goes East, on Saturday, April 12, 2014.
Glamorous and intriguing Shanghai in a bygone heyday will serve as the theme for an evening that celebrates the international scope of the organization’s reach. The Happening will commence with signature cocktails at sunset overlooking downtown San Antonio, followed by a subterranean dinner in a secret location. Of course, the event will only really get into the swing of things when we return to the rooftop for dancing by moonlight.
As a public charity, Artpace depends on the success of the annual Happening to sustain its free, dynamic programming. So please join us for an unforgettable evening that directly benefits Artpace’s residencies, exhibitions, and education efforts—and ensures Artpace continues to flourish.
