In the 1970s, three pioneering young artists, Norman Rene Avila, Donjon Evans and George Horner, formed the San Antonio Museum of Modern Art (SAMOMA), which presented exhibitions, performances, lectures and film screenings from 1976–79. The show includes works by artists who exhibited at SAMOMA and subsequently had their work collected by SAMA: Judy Bankhead, Rolando Briseño, Larry Graeber, Jim Harter, Marilyn Lanfear, Henry Stein, Kathy Vargas, Robert Willson and Gene Elder, whose Time Capsule containing works by 100 San Antonio artists and writers remains sealed within SAMA’s walls until the Museum’s 2181 Bicentennial.
