In 1992, a young Texan singer caught the attention of a now-defunct, New York-based publication, Mas Magazine. They asked San Antonio photographer John Dyer to shoot a cover and spread of the performer.

The McNay Art Museum’s new exhibit, "Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage," explores all mediums of theatre art, from set design to music composition to on-stage performance. The extensive collection of late San Antonio arts philanthropist Robert Tobin made the exhibition possible.

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, when members of the queer community in New York City clashed with cops in protest of anti-gay raids and police brutality. In commemoration of the anniversary, San Antonio’s McNay Art Museum is featuring works that explore gender identity. 

The exhibit is open until Sept. 15. Ticket information can be found here.
