McNay Art Museum, opened to the public in 1954, is the first modern art museum in Texas. Located in San Antonio and named for founder Marion Koogler McNay, the McNay engages a diverse community in the discovery and enjoyment of the visual arts.
Since Marion McNay's original bequest, the museum's collection has expanded to over 22,000 works including: Medieval and Renaissance art; 19th- through 21st- century European and American paintings, sculptures, and photographs; one of the finest collections of prints and drawings in the Southwest; the exceptional Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts; Jeanne and Irving Mathews Collection of Art Glass; Art of New Mexico; and many more.
The Jane and Arthur Stieren Center for Exhibitions, built in 2008 and designed by French architect Jean-Paul Viguier, added 45,000 square feet to the museum and created gallery space for major exhibitions, a sculpture gallery and garden, a lecture hall, and classrooms for the museum's many educational programs.
