MISSION REACH | 2013
South of Lone Star Blvd. opposite of Roosevelt Park
A bench by Anita Valencia, who draws inspiration for her art from concern over rampant consumerism and its ecological impacts, highlights the conservation efforts of the San Antonio River Foundation. The brightly colored bench features swarming butterflies made of recycled aluminum cans and compliments the profusion of wildflowers showcased in this stretch of the river.
COMMISSIONED PUBLIC ART
The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio’s public art collection in perpetuity.
