A visit to the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) takes you around the world and through five thousand years of art in a complex of buildings that once housed the Lone Star Brewery.
SAMA is renowned for the most comprehensive ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian art collection in the southern United States.
The Nelson A. Rockefeller Latin American art wing spans the ages from the ancient Americas to the present and includes an outstanding collection of folk art.
In the contemporary galleries, works of internationally recognized artists share prominence with notable Texas and regional art.
The comprehensive Asian art wing displays works from Korea, India, and Japan, and includes an important Chinese ceramics collection.
