“The Department of Arts & Culture hosts the latest city-wide exhibit “Sebastian in San Antonio: 50+ Years / 20+ Sites / 100+ Works”. The exhibit includes more than 100 sculptures and works of the famed Mexican artist, on display through May 2020 in more than 20 locations accessible to residents and visitors alike. The featured works span the artist’s more than 50-year career.
Sebastian also created the nearly two decades-old “Torch of Friendship” which stands at the intersection of Alamo Street and Commerce Street. The Torch was a gift to the City of San Antonio from Mexican businesses in San Antonio to symbolize the longstanding friendship and history between the two places over the years.
This retrospective exhibit solidifies the spirit of friendship and bridging San Antonio and Mexico closer through art and culture.”
