About The Project
WindowWorks is an exhibition program in which Artpace annually commissions three local artists to produce site-specific projects for its windows that face downtown San Antonio?busy North Main Avenue. The program, which has been expanded in 2007 as part of the institution?strategic emphasis on support for local artists, demonstrates Artpace?commitment to extending the dialogue about contemporary art beyond traditional gallery spaces.
Artpace San Antonio serves as an advocate for contemporary art and as a catalyst for the creation of significant art projects. We seek to nurture emerging and established artists and to provide opportunities for inspiration, experimentation, and education. Our programs support the evolution of new ideas in contemporary art and cultivate diverse audiences while providing a forum for ongoing dialogue.
