Arturo Infante Almeida, Exhibition Curator

Texas is fast becoming one of the most progressive and exciting art scenes on the horizon. Hosted at the Institute of Texan Cultures, the Texas Contemporary Artists Series exhibitions showcase the talents of some of Texas' premier artists.

UTSA Art Collection

UTSA Art Collection Comprised of both gifts and acquisitions of fine art to The University of San Antonio, The UTSA Art Collection contains paintings, sculptures, works on paper and mixed media by many talented South Texas artists, some of whom are graduates of UTSA. University Curator Arturo Infante Almeida reviews potential gifts and makes recommendations based on their artistic merit and appropriateness for the campus collection.

Pieces in the collection are located in interior and exterior sites throughout the University's three campuses and are maintained by the UTSA Art Specialist. Our hope at the University is to enhance the educational environment for thousands of students, faculty and staff, while making UTSA aesthetically pleasant for our visitors.

Art Loan Program

The principal mission of The University of Texas at San Antonio Art Collection Office is to preserve and showcase the varied art collections owned by the University and enhance the UTSA community's appreciation and knowledge of the arts.
