MUSEUM REACH | 2009
Puente de los Encuentros
Bridges at McCullough and Brooklyn Streets
San Antonio born artist Rolando Briseño redesigned the railings on two bridges at McCullough Street —Puente de Rippling Shadows— and Brooklyn Street —Puente de Los Encuentros— incorporating references to river and water shapes and regional hospitality at each rail and arbor form. His structures shade pedestrians, and encourage them to linger and connect with the river below.
COMMISSIONED PUBLIC ART
The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio’s public art collection in perpetuity.
