San Antonio Art League Museum
A great showcase for local artists, the San Antonio Art League Museum is home to permanent exhibits, many of which express the history of the area. The featured exhibit is a series of Texas wildflower competition portraits from the 1920s. The San Antonio Art League was organized in March 13, 1912. Representing several art groups, the founders sought to achieve a three-fold goal; to provide artists with a place to exhibit their works, to acquire paintings for the public's enjoyment, and to found an art school. In 1926, the Art League began what was to become a 45 year alliance with the Witte Museum, sharing space. A dream was realized in 1927 when the Museum of Art school was born.
