San Antonio Museum of Art Gifted Several Works of Contemporary Art

The San Antonio Museum of Art announced that it has received three separate gifts of contemporary art. The Dallas Consortium gave the institution Nic Nicosia’s major series “Space Time Light,” 2008–2009, which comprises ten large-scale archival ink-jet images on canvases. It is the first work by the artist to enter the collection.

The Alex Katz Foundation, which has been focused on donating works of art by living American artists to American art museums, donated one work each by artists Katherine Bernhardt, Richard Bosman, Juan Gomez, Lauren Nickou, and Virginia Overton. In addition, the institution was given a large-scale bronze sculpture by American artist Catherine Lee from an anonymous donor.

“These gifts to the museum, combined with our recent and exciting reinstallation of the museum’s modern and contemporary art galleries, reflect our commitment to bringing the very best contemporary art from around the world to San Antonio,” said museum director Katherine Crawford Luber. “We are grateful to these donors for their support, as well as to curator Suzanne Weaver, whose relationships with important collectors and foundations in the contemporary art community have been so crucial to the continued growth of our collections.”
