Highest Heaven at San Antonio Museum of Art

The San Antonio Museum of Art opens today “Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the collection of Roberta and Richard Huber”. At 116 works – ranging from painting and sculpture to silverwork and furniture – the exhibition is a tour de force and extraordinary visual experience.

Listen to curator William Rudolph discuss some of the works in the exhibition:


“Sometimes when people come to visit us in New York, we almost have to do a disclaimer as they walk into the house: ‘No, we are not religious fanatics!'”
– collectors Roberta and Richard Huber


And a personal favorite:
