First opened to the public in 1981, the museum is housed in what was originally a Brewery complex. Through a series of additions, the museum is now accessible to the San Antonio Riverwalk and exhibits art of the ancient Mediterranean world, a 15,000 sq. ft. suite of galleries of Asian art, and an extensive collection of Latin American art and folk art.
A significant portion of the Museum’s Contemporary collection is devoted to post-World War II American painting and sculpture, including an emphasis on modernist abstraction. In addition, the Museum collects contemporary Texas paintings and sculpture from the 1960s to present day.
