Free Day at SAMA

When: Fri., Dec. 26, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. 2014

Although observed elsewhere as Boxing Day (a bank holiday fueled by sports, shopping and gifting in the UK, Canada, Australia and beyond) and St. Stephen’s Day (a feast day honoring the first Christian martyr), the San Antonio Museum of Art celebrates December 26 by opening its galleries with a full day of free admission. As if wallet-friendly encounters with “Dos Mujeres: Diego Rivera’s Cubist Masterpiece,” “Raíces Americanas: Recent Acquisitions of Pre-Columbian Art,” “Legacy of Beauty: An Exhibition of Chinese Ceramics in Honor of Walter F. Brown” and the new “Nelson Rockefeller’s Picassos: Tapestries Commissioned for Kykuit” (for a $10 surcharge) weren’t enough, Bite Street Bistro will be on hand with food truck fare to satiate “weary cooks, eager shoppers, art lovers and underfoot relatives.”

Price: Free
