Satellite Reef – San Antonio

For over 45 years the Southwest School of Art has offered instruction in crafts such as book arts, ceramics, jewelry, and sculpture to the citizens of San Antonio. Until it began offering a BFA degree very recently, the school's curriculum was designed for non-degree-seeking students of all ages, from teens to retirees. The IFF can't think of a more suitable place to host a Satellite Reef, as the Crochet Coral Reef project has been delighted to primarily focus on bringing its pedagogy to curious adults around the world.

The San Antonio Satellite Reef kicked off in February of 2015, with a public lecture by Margaret Wertheim and the opening of the IFF's CCR traveling exhibition at the Russell Hill Rogers Gallery on campus. With the traveling show providing some initial inspiration, the Satellite will continue to grow over the next year, with a culminating exhibition scheduled for March 6 - 27, 2016. The show will be on view across the street from the School at the San Antonio Central Library. The Library's building was designed by renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, and is yet another hub for the city's vibrant arts scene.
