San Pedro Creek Culture Park – Phase 1, Segment 2

In the fall of 2019, the San Antonio River Authority, in partnership with Bexar County, released a Request for Qualifications to select an artist team to create a large-scale mural for San Pedro Creek Culture Park.  This historically themed mural, located between Commerce St and Dolorosa St, will play a significant role in telling the illustrious story of the creek.

In early 2020, a selection panel comprised of local art and design professionals reviewed the applications received and selected Carlos Cortes, Fernando Andrade, Rolando Briseño, Jenelle Esparza and Ernesto Ibañez for the commission.  This multigenerational team brings a unique vision and skill set to the project and celebrates San Antonio’s rich and diverse creative community.

A set of goals was established for this project to guide the development of the artwork design.  The goals, listed below, highlight the importance of community engagement in that process.  In addition, the artists have been researching creek history and conducting interviews with local historians.

  • Be compelling and aesthetically excellent
  • Incorporate participation from the community into the design of the artwork
  • Celebrate the cultural diversity of the creek and its connection to San Antonio’s and Bexar County’s origin stories
  • Create excitement and interest from the community and culture park visitors
  • Endure the climate of this area, the flooding nature of the creek and a variety of linear park public uses
