These works of art are from the Permanent Collection of the Art Museum of South Texas. They change periodically to give travelers a sense of what is currently on view at the Museum. To see more of the Art Museum’s 1,952 piece-and-growing permanent collection visit us at 1902 North Shoreline Boulevard. Our two iconic buildings the Philip Johnson, and Ricardo Legorreta buildings sit like two beacons of fine art rising from the bay.
