Artpace San Antonio Hosts La Primavera Event

THE SCENE: The Happening, a gala attended by some of the most active art collectors in Central and South Texas, was again Artpace’s signature event— and this year, it also marked the organization’s 23rd anniversary. The evening’s theme, La Primavera, was inspired by the region’s rich South Texas community and enchanting landscapes. The organization’s patrons celebrated Artpace under the stars on Main Street in downtown San Antonio with a night of dinner and entertainment on the closed street.

THE VIBE: The artful vibe began as guests were welcomed to the evening’s cocktail hour. The evening’s honorees were art collector Jereann Chaney and Cornelia Parker, a former Artpace resident, now working and living in London. The event also highlighted the contemporary artists who have passed through Artpace’s programs. The organization plays a role in the community as a dynamic, contemporary cultural arts space where varied perspectives and issues are explored through visual arts, film, music, and performance. The culturally vibrant evening was capped with a Rooftop After Party where guests danced the night away with the skyline as their backdrop.

THE CAUSE: Ethel Shipton and Nate Cassie, along with Ceci & Michael Goldstone served as the gala’s co-chairs, who along with Board Chair Patricia Ruiz-Healy and the host committee helped make the event happen so successfully.  In addition to serving as one of the season’s hottest tickets in town, The Happening also raised funds for Artpace, a renowned contemporary art space located in downtown San Antonio, Texas, with residencies, exhibitions, and education programs that nurture the freedom to dream. Artpace supports the creative process and engages audiences with the most innovative art and artists from around the world.
