San Antonio and the Chinese city of Wuxi became sister cities in 2012, and now their relationship is reinforced with 6.5 tons of limestone.

When the Museum Reach stretch of the San Antonio River was revitalized and opened to the public in May 2009, it turned the littered, scrub-choked waterway into a one-of-a-kind linear park. A decade later, one of the Reach's most interesting aspects still has a hidden mystery.

From a behind-the-scenes look at the life of an artist, to a celebration of love, to the melding of music and art, here’s a preview of this weekend’s events.

A fascinating gallery opening, an artful movie and Buddy Guy. There's a lot to do this weekend; this is just a snapshot. First off tonight--a photographer with a curiously titled exhibition.

"Miles per hour" Adam Rodriguez laughed. He and Jim Glasscock did something really unusual last year.

"He and I decided to ride our bikes from the Canadian Border in Montana, back to Rock Springs, where he's from."

From a great exhibit to the musical roots of the Texas cowboy, there's lots going on this weekend.

The San Antonio Museum of Art is showing a free movie on Friday night that has, in the years since its release,  gained cult status.  Given the exploding reputation of the Movie’s producers, its reputation has grown with time. 

"I think that now it's a classic. We can say it's a cult movie for sure."

SAMA's Emily Dujour is talking about a movie that helped give Jeff Bridges cult status: The Big Lebowski. It's apparent from the first scene that you're watching a Coen Brothers movie.

Something different is happening this weekend at a San Antonio Museum of Art Exhibition. First, SAMA's Katie Luber talks about the exhibition itself -- it's called 28 Chinese

"That features works by 28 contemporary Chinese artists working today," she said.

The expansive exhibition has a huge variety of art.
