These art works are from the Permanent Collection of the Art Museum of South Texas and are changed out periodically. 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.
