On Tuesday, July 8th the Texas Patrons took a trip to San Antonio for a tour of Matisse’s Life in Color exhibit.
The Life in Color exhibit was an overall success. The Texas Patrons enjoyed a tour of Matisse’s sixty years of work, including more than eighty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. The patrons were able to admire Matisse’s unique use of lines, color and spacing, up close and in person on Tuesday. The display of this masterful 20th century artist’s creative style was a great way for members to gather together to share in their passion for history and the arts.
After the tour, the patrons had a very unique opportunity present itself thanks to Elizabeth Card. In honor of our current project being the Our Lady of Guadalupe in the Vatican Gardens, Mrs. Card volunteered to give a presentation of the Lady of Guadalupe statue in the Latin American wing of the San Antonio Museum of Art. We were honored to have Elizabeth Card give the presentation on the Lady of Guadalupe and we’d like to thank both Michael and Elizabeth Card for making this evening possible.
