UTSA Libraries Special Collections has partnered with the McNay Art Museum to present HemisFair ’68: San Antonio World’s Fair, an exhibit organized in celebration of the 50th anniversary of HemisFair ’68 and of San Antonio’s Tricentennial.  The exhibit primarily draws from the archival holdings of UTSA Special Collections.

Highlighting artists and designers who contributed to the Fair, HemisFair ’68: San Antonio’s World’s Fair features small selections of artworks, architectural drawings, conceptual site plans, costume and graphic designs, ephemera, souvenirs, and audiovisual materials, including film and sound recordings, that document the early planning for HemisFair ’68.

The exhibit runs from May 3, 2018 to July 29, 2018
