The NEA has selected  UTSA’s College of Architecture for a $50,000 grant to develop a transit stop near the redeveloped Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in San Antonio. The grant will fund a seres of public discussions in the fall aimed at developing concepts for the new transit center. According to the city’s press release about the project, “prominent local and national artists, architects and designers will be invited to develop momentum for the design process, and provide public art and design expertise.” UTSA students will be “helping to facilitate the public engagement process.”

The NEA’s Our Town grant program supports partnerships between nonprofits and local government. “This award is great news,” said San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro,”it is collaborative projects like this that bring about creative growth in our city. The Our Town grant will also enable the Office of Cultural Affairs to further its efforts to bring art and culture to public spaces.”
