“The Vibrant Village is a series of 12 paintings located in the lobby of the City Tower building in downtown San Antonio. The artwork embodies the energy of San Antonio and depicts iconic landmarks and city departments, representing the important role of community in government,” Interim Executive Director Krystal Jones. “Vibrant Village captures the exciting energy and rhythm of our city through bursts of color to welcome visitors and employees alike to City Tower. It aligns perfectly with the sensory experience of Fiesta San Antonio – vibrant, lively and large scale.”
