 Santikos Art in the Garden Opening Reception

January 31 @ 5:30 pm7:30 pm

 Santikos Art in the Garden at the San Antonio Botanical Garden presents the work of a young emerging Mexican artist, Alejandro Martin, AKA “Otto.” Six of Otto’s five-foot sculptures will be exhibited at the Garden from January 2019 through January 2020. Guests are invited to the exhibit opening at the Garden on January 31, 2019 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The opening is free and open to the public.

Based in Mexico City, Otto’s metal sculptures are informed by digital symbols of his generation. Bold, larger-than-life hashtags feature prominently in his works alongside asterisks and block figures that seem to emerge from a real life Minecraft© game. Otto studied at the Lumen School and has developed projects at the Art Institute of Chicago, and has collaborated with musical artist BEZESIE to create the cover art for their newest album, The Lights. Of his sculpture, he says that his art lives in a world made and seen in lines.

Santikos Art in the Garden is supported by a grant from the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation, a fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation, the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts, and in partnership with Art Legacy and Gomez Vasquez International.

 Kiddie Park


Kiddie Park, one of San Antonio’s most treasured landmarks, is the perfect way for children and adults to enjoy a nostalgic day of old-fashioned fun. Established in 1925, and renovated in 2009, Kiddie Park is the oldest children’s amusement park in the country! While modern updates have been made, the park has preserved it’s 1920’s style by maintaining all of the original rides. Guests can enjoy the park’s old-fashioned ferris wheel, famous hand-carved Herschell Spillman carousel, and other classic children’s rides that have made Kiddie Park an iconic San Antonio attraction for over 90 years!

We are pleased to bring San Antonio’s iconic park back to life. You can always expect a clean, beautiful park that is fun and affordable for the entire family! We look forward to seeing you soon!
