1st Anniversary of San Antonio | The Saga

When: Sat., June 13, 6-9 p.m. 2015

Dazzling tourists and locals alike since its unveiling last summer, French artist Xavier de Richemont’s 23-minute video installation San Antonio | The Saga employs San Fernando Cathedral as a canvas to “narrate the historical discovery, settlement and development of San Antonio.” On view through 2024, the 7,000-square-foot projection celebrates its first anniversary with the publication of a commemorative book. Besides screenings of the video and a signing with de Richemont, the event features live music by accordion hero Flaco Jiménez, singer-songwriter Tish Hinojosa and Mariachi Corazón de San Antonio.
