AAA Editor Notes
San Antonio Museum of Art is at 200 W. Jones Ave. The complex occupies the 1884 Lone Star Brewing Co. off Broadway. The historic brewhouse, with its modified Romanesque towers and turrets, is now the art museum. The West and East towers contain four levels of galleries. Glass elevators operate in each of the towers. The complex along the San Antonio River includes a 2.5-acre sculpture garden.
The museum’s permanent collections include Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities; European and American paintings; and decorative and contemporary arts. The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Latin American Art features an extensive permanent collection of Spanish and Colonial art, modern and contemporary art, folk art and pre-Columbian art. The Lenora and Walter F. Brown Asian Art Wing houses Japanese, Korean, Indian and other Asian art.
