Latino Arts and Culture Celebrated
At New San Antonio Center
The Museo Alameda Smithsonian, the new Alameda National Center for Latino Arts and Culture, is now open in San Antonio. Located in historic Market Square, the new 39,000-square-foot Museo Alameda Smithsonian tells the story of the Latino experience in America through art, history and culture.
The striking bright pink structure features a Smithsonian Gallery, additional galleries, and a sculpture garden featuring pieces from the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Both the Smithsonian Institution and the Kennedy Center, Washington cultural institutions, set up an affiliation with Alameda a decade ago. The museo is the result.
More than 300,000 visitors annually are expected to visit the new facility. That could make it the most visited Latino museum in the U.S. San Antonio is one of America’s most Latino cities with a Hispanic population exceeding 55 percent.
