- On Thursday, Ruby City reopens its doors to the public after closing in March 2020.
With that return, the contemporary art center will debut two new installations, Isaac Julien’s five-screen film installation Western Union: Small Boats (2007) and Margarita Cabrera’s The Craft of Resistance (2008), which is comprised of 2,500 monarch butterflies made from copper.
Ruby City has also extended its inaugural exhibition “Waking Dream” through summer 2022.
Safety protocols for the reopening include a face-mask requirement and advanced ticket reservations online.
For now, Studio at Ruby City will remain closed, but the space will welcome guests on August 5 as one of the sites hosting the 2021 Texas Biennial, a group exhibition showcasing 51 artists with connections to the Lone Star State.
Free, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday to Sunday starting June 17, Ruby City, 150 Camp St., (210) 227-8400, rubycity.org.
