Second Saturday Brings Two Chances to Catch Shows You May Have Missed This Summer


  • Bryan Rindfuss
San Antonio's lively art scene can be a blessing and a curse, particularly if you're a regular victim of FOMO. This month, Artpace and Studio 111 are giving you a chance to experience (or relive) special events that already debuted this summer.

Narcissister Activated Sculptures at Artpace

While the three exhibitions produced by Juana Córdova, Francis Almendárez and Narcissister for Artpace's 2019 International Artist-in-Residence program are on view during daily opening hours, there's something missing from Narcissister's "Wimmin" – the human element. If you missed the series of performances presented at the official opening reception, never fear, because Artpace is hosting live activations every few weeks until the exhibition's close, including this upcoming Saturday.

Free, 1-2 p.m., Artpace, 445 N. Main Ave., (210) 212-4900,

Humans of San Antonio Book Mural Showcase at Studio 111

As part of the Global Humans Project, "a network of major cities around the world dedicated to capturing a glimpse into the lives of everyday citizens," photojournalist Michael Cirlos has documented the lives of Alamo City locals on social media since 2012. Now immortalized in a book and a mural downtown, Humans of San Antonio took some time to celebrate with a special iteration of the mural hung on the walls of Studio 111. After a rousing opening on July 13, HOSA is back for seconds this weekend with a night of drinks, music and bellydancing.

Free, 7-11 p.m., Studio 111, 111 Lone Star Blvd.,
