Historical Note

The UTSA Art Collection is composed of over 1500 pieces representing more than 500 individual artists. The fine art pieces have been acquired through both gifts and purchases, and include mostly contemporary paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and mixed media by South Texas artists, some of whom are alumni of UTSA. As stated in their mission statement, the aim of the collection is to support local, established, and emerging artists through exhibitions, publications and symposia. National and international artists are also represented within the collection.

The collection was spearheaded by President Ricardo Romo and has been coordinated by Arturo Almeida since he joined the University as Curator in 2003. The collection has significantly increased in size since 2004 with the acquisition of 1000 pieces. Noteworthy donors include AT&T and Cheech Marin, who gave a 26-print collection of Chicano art.


Scope and Content Note

The records span the years 1995 to 2015 and include planning, research, inventory, and other administrative files related to management of the UTSA Art Collection. The records also contain postcards, photographs, and posters related to events and artists represented in the collection.

Nearly half of the records (5.5 linear feet) consist of planning files for events. These include information for events organized on behalf of President Ricardo Romo, in addition to files about the Texas Photographers: Description of China exhibition, and the Texas Contemporary Artists Series. Documentation related to maintaining an inventory of art pieces and research files on individual artists are also included in the records.
