«Common Currents» — 300 years, 300 artists, 6 art organizations — all partnering together to illuminate 300 years of San Antonio history.

The Southwest School of Art, Texas' only independent institute of art, continues Common Currents, beginning February 15th, covering the years 1818 through 1867.

The exhibit runs through Sunday, April 22nd and is free and open to the public.

How does Common Currents work?

Each of the six selected San Antonio art organizations for the project began by inviting two artists. These initial 12 artists were then asked to invite two peer artists, until more than 300 were amassed. All of the participating artists were assigned one year of San Antonio’s history on which to reflect in the development of their work for Common Currents. This exhibition is presented chronologically through the six venues.

Common Currents draws a portrait of San Antonio, by San Antonians. With the “chain letter-inspired” framework for the exhibition, each organization takes a backseat, letting the participating artists make decisions that may traditionally be the role of the organization or curator. This provides for an exciting presentation of artistic connections spanning our center city’s art venues.
