Recognized as one of the most ornate facilities in the country, the Majestic has long held a special place in the archives of Texas theatrical and architectural history. Located at 224 E.

Artpace has garnered recognition for supporting the creative impulse through its residency and exhibition program, as well as its range of educational public programs.

Artpace serves as an advocate for contemporary art and a catalyst for production: it is a residency program as well as a site of exchange. It does this primarily through its International Artist-in-Residence program which annually invites nine artists to live and work in San Antonio for two months to conceive and create pivotal art projects.
