San Antonio Art Scene
There are the usual institutions like San Antonio Museum of Art, ArtPace, Blue Star Contemporary Art Center and the Mc Nay Museum, but here are some of the "you need to know someone to know about them" alternative spaces. Here is a map for you to print out and bring with you on your visit to San Antonio. If you live here and don't know about them, don't be a stranger. 
Keep in mind most of these spaces are by appointment after the opening so you will need to call ahead in most cases but they are worth the extra effort.
