Yesterday was the dedication ceremony of the newest artistic addition to downtown San Antonio. Adam is a 2,500 square-foot red and white abstract wall painting by Venezuelan-born contemporary artist Arturo Herrera that will add color and artistic value to the area. It is more than 25 feet tall and 98 feet wide and the first large scale public installation of the Linda Pace Foundation.which strives to help the community appreciate art in more unconventional settings. The mural will be displayed on the side of the Frost Bank Parking Garage at the northwest corner of Commerce Street and Main Avenue through December 2016.

Arturo Herrera was born in Venezuela and received his BFA from the University of Tulsa and his MFA from The University of Illinois at Chicago. He first came to San Antonio in 2000 as an Artpace artist and has now returned to create this art piece that he hopes will inspire locals and visitors alike.

"The inspiration for the wall painting Adam was about movement, the dynamism of abstraction, and the soaring energetic field, like Spring, when everything awakens"- Arturo Herrera

The mission of the Linda Pace Foundation is to provide the community with contemporary art through the funding of Artpace, CHRISpark, contemporary art collections and contemporary artists.
