For those of us who missed out on their latest exhibitions before the shelter-in-place order came down, San Anto’s art institutions have found virtual ways for us view them at home. Curators Suzanne Weaver and Lana Meador give the highlights of the San Antonio Museum of Art’s “Texas Women” exhibition in a special virtual tour (samuseum.org), while the McNay Art Museum has posted video lectures that dive deep into its exhibitions “Fashion Nirvana: Runway to Everyday” and “Siempre Selena” (mcnayart.org). Both museums also have digitized collections online for you to peruse at your leisure.

Looking for more of a party atmosphere? Anyone feeling Fiesta FOMO can tune into Ruby City’s April 10 newsletter for tips for hosting a remote Fiesta party, then return for more fun when the art center celebrates founder Linda Pace’s birthday on April 17. Those of us who have been missing our book clubs can get cracking on Artpace’s April Reading Red Book Club pick — Linda Nochlin’s essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” — and join a virtual discussion on April 25.
But what’s the best way to keep up with all these online happenings? Believe it or not, it’s newsletters. Yes, we’re all used to ignoring them as if they’re spam, but SAMA, the McNay, Artpace, Ruby City and others are bringing all this and more to your inbox each week. Just hop on over to their websites to get added to their lists.
