San Antonio is One of Five International Cities to Host Special Exhibition
Lovers of beauty and art have something exciting to look forward to in early September. Our own McNay Art Museum is one of a small number of international museums selected to host an amazing exhibition of impressionist and postimpressionist paintings that include the works of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh.
The exhibition, Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art, includes nearly 70 paintings borrowed from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. It opens at the McNay on Sept. 3 and continues through Jan. 4, 2015. Hosting the exhibition is a huge score for the McNay and San Antonio, which is one of only five international cities to host Intimate Impressionism. The exhibition began in Rome, is currently in Seattle and will visit San Francisco and Tokyo after stopping at the McNay.
More than an exhibition, Intimate Impressionism at the McNay will include a schedule of fun, creative and unique events related to the show including films, concerts, special lectures, workshops and family activities. The exhibition will include a family activity area for children.
The McNay Museum is located at 6000 N. New Braunfels, 78209. Admission to the exhibition will be in addition to general admission. The McNay will offer extended hours for the exhibition, and on Sundays admission to the exhibition will be $10. For more information visit www.mcnayart.org.
