ArtSpace UTSA

Sunday, August 21st, I followed a landmark in the destination guide to ArtSpace UTSA.  There are already lots of blog entries about the USTA (University of Texas at San Antonio) and their committment to Second Life (if you want to read more see here). The ArtSpace UTSA is a quite small gallery embedded in a futuristic installation of buildings, stairs, platforms, sculptures and other elements of art.

The current exhibition (August – October 2016) shows the work from Betty Tureaud (that is the sculpture you see in the picture above and below) and black&white pictures from Laoin Xaris. You can “sit” on the sculpture and get “into it”, then it looks like in the picture below on the right side. Quite a play with colours and quite opposed to the surrounding black&white minimalistic pictures from Laoin Xaris.20160821 artspace UTSA_01520160821 artspace UTSA_016The gallery is not large, there’s not much more to see but the surrounding structure and buildings are really worth a visit too. I walked and climbed to see what is there. On one plateau I saw a big sceleton of a dinosaur. I also discovered a morphing sculpture from Sasun Steinbeck which impressed me. But go and explore yourself ….
