    The Texas Churches and Missions of Roberto Cardinale

    Featuring wooden sculptures by Robert Cardinale, Texas Missions and Churches presents an artist’s vision of 12 iconic Texas religious sites to explore the critical role missions and churches played in the development of the Lone Star State. Cardinale, now of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is a former president of the San Antonio Art Institute and has created more than 500 sculptures depicting churches and synagogues from around the world.


    The exhibit will include wooden artistic interpretations of San Antonio’s Spanish Missions, San Fernando Cathedral before and after its renovations, El Paso’s Mission Ysleta, and other sites. Visitors will be able to see the artist’s original sketches before he began assembling the wooden sculptures.


    Various history panels in the exhibit will detail mission architecture and construction techniques, and unique architectural features such as perfectly placed windows which allow solar illuminations of the sanctuaries.
