40 Years, 40 Stories: Treasures and New Discoveries from SAMA's Collection

This year the San Antonio Museum of Art celebrates its 40th anniversary, and to mark the occasion our fall exhibition, "40 Years, 40 Stories: Treasures and New Discoveries from SAMA’s Collection," will focus on the unique works in the Museum’s own collection. From 1981 to now, SAMA’s collections have grown to include nearly 30,000 works of art from around the world. These objects reflect a broad range of human experience, and each has a tale to tell about cultures, communities, and history. "40 Years, 40 Stories" brings together a selection of artworks that have not recently been on display and shares their fascinating stories. Like the Museum’s collection, the works in this exhibition span the globe, representing cultures on six continents and thousands of years of human endeavor, from the oldest work in the collection, a female figure made in northern Mesopotamia more than six thousand years ago, to the present day.
