MOVEMENT – SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE
Movement – San Antonio College
Designed for the east wall of the McAllister Fine Arts Building of San Antonio College, Movement, a colorful, abstract mural constructed of ceramic tile, will engage viewers passing by car, on foot, and enjoying the neighboring San Pedro Park.
Undulating, fluid bands of color echoing the palette of the campus’ architecture compose this large-scale artwork conceived by renowned San Antonio artist and Blue Star Contemporary MOSAIC Artist-in-Residence, Alex Rubio, whose iconic style has been showcased in murals and public art projects citywide. Movement reflects the dynamic programming taking place inside the fine arts building—dance, music, design, visual arts—and the energy of the larger San Antonio College campus as well. This large public artwork will be completed by young artists in Blue Star Contemporary’s MOSAIC program, an after-school program for area high school students with the goal of encouraging lifelong learning and fostering their professional careers as artists.
