Art showcased in yearlong Tricentennial celebration
The Tricentennial Commission, of which I was a member, asked community arts organizations in 2016 to participate in the yearlong celebration. The response was overwhelming.
More than 700 organizations proposed activities, exhibitions, performances, parades and concerts to showcase the various aspects of San Antonio’s diverse history and culture. Each proudly identified their organization as essential to the cultural fabric of San Antonio. And each responded with the explicit understanding that they would develop these celebratory activities with little — if any — financial support from the city.
