It was a beautiful, sunny day at the gardens of the Witte Museum. The butterflies were out in force, looking for an energy source to fuel their magical flights.
One part of the Witte Museum is the South Texas Heritage Center. This consists of a two floor exhibit with Texas memorabilia everywhere.
Parts of the Witte Museum are currently under construction, but they still have plenty of art to admire. My favorites depicted the Mission life in South Texas.
For my last event while in San Antonio, I chose to visit the National Geographic Earth Explorers exhibit at the Witte Museum. The website explains that you will “Follow six, National Geographic scientists on their adventures through Earth’s diverse eco-zones and discover what it takes to survive and study in some of the planet’s most extreme conditions.” The highlights are the videos sprinkled throughout the exhibit, but these photos will give you an idea of what to expect.
This brief collection of photos will give you an idea of some of the paintings that can be found at the Briscoe Western Art Museum in downtown San Antonio.
