San Antonio, Texas
When the San Antonio River Authority and Bexar County sought to improve storm water management for San Pedro Creek, they chose to develop a new public amenity rather than hide this important infrastructure project. Ricardo Barreto, Jennifer McGregor, and I collaborated on the public art strategy for San Pedro Creek Culture Park.
The plan calls for a limited number of permanent installations and an ongoing series of temporary public art installations and performances. Through our process, the San Pedro Creek Culture Alliance, a group of local and regional community members and artists, was formed to collaborate with SARA and keep this park authentically San Antonio.
Carrie Brown became the first SARA curator to lead the program. Watch the progress of this new public art program here.
