On Saturday, October 10, 2015, Artpace will present its 12th Annual Chalk It Up arts festival. Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Argo Group and our generous supporters, this annual celebration of contemporary art empowers the San Antonio community by providing free access to creative activities designed to engage and embolden young audiences.
In 2013, more than 22,500 people gathered to express their creativity among family, friends, and neighbors along four blocks of downtown’s Houston Street. Using the temporary and accessible medium of chalk, Artpace transports its mission to serve as a creative laboratory into the public sphere by providing barrier-free, direct engagement with the arts for all San Antonians. In fact, for many of the attendees, Chalk It Up is a hands-on introduction to art and art making. At its core, Chalk It Up plays a pivotal role in ensuring students continue to experience and explore the possibilities of art. Through participation in the festival’s street gallery and adjacent creation stations, children—who comprise an overwhelming majority of the audience—gain an invaluable opportunity to practice teamwork and sharpen critical thinking skills, proven outcomes of access to art education.
Taking place on Saturday, October 11, 2014, from 10am to 4pm, Chalk It Up is entirely funded by Artpace’s generous partners who enjoy opportunities for community-wide brand exposure in exchange for event underwriting.

-Entrance into San Antonio Beer Festival
-Beer Sample Card for use between 1:30pm-6:30pm
With the purchase of your San Antonio Beer Festival ticket, you will receive a sampling card redeemable for (12) 2 ounce beers. Why? The state of Texas and the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission does not allow “unlimited tasting” events. The maximum amount of beer Texas allows to be sold at any one time is 24 ounces. We don’t like the 24 ounce limitation at a beer festival as much as you don’t, which is why we’re pricing additional sampling cards really low. The day of the festival, you’ll be able to purchase additional sample cards for only $1! (Legally we have to charge you something.) You can also purchase full sized beers for just $4 if you choose.
Experience the beer festival that everyone has been talking about for ten years. The San Antonio Beer Festival welcomes everyone 21 and over. Feel free to bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy a beautiful fall day at Maverick Park.

Millions of people visit the River Walk each year to enjoy this unusual urban sanctuary that winds along the San Antonio River in central San Antonio, one story below the bustling street level. Restaurants, galleries and shops line the banks of the downtown River Walk while the north and south banks of the River are less commercial.
The River Walk’s new Museum Reach opened in May 2009 and stretches north along the San Antonio River, and connects the existing River Walk to the San Antonio Museum of Art and the 125-year-old Pearl Brewery, a vibrant urban village. New public art installations, by local, national and international artists, line the banks.
A lock and dam system, the only one in Texas, overcomes a 9-ft. rise in elevation. Take a river taxi and navigate right through the lock and dam.
The Museum Reach is the first phase of a concerted community effort to revitalize the San Antonio River begun in 1998. A comprehensive, multi-year project is underway to restore and enhance 13 miles of the San Antonio River both north and south of downtown.
Take a Sunset River Cruise
One of the best ways to see the new art installations along the River Walk Museum Reach is a sunset taxi ride. You'll see the full charm and beauty of the art lit up in the darkness.
Pick up a river taxi at convenient stops along the River Walk. The Rio Taxi drivers have tickets on board that you may purchase, or you may purchase them in advance at a ticket location. Find boarding points and get tickets
Guided River Tour
Explore the River Walk's downtown section aboard a river cruiser. You'll learn about San Antonio's rich history from a professional storyteller who is also the boat captain. It's a great way to learn more about San Antonio and its famous River Walk.
Our mission is to connect the private and public sectors through education, innovative marketing, community events, and creative financing programs. We provide direct assistance to homeowners and businesses ready to “go solar” on a daily basis.
We actively encourage the widespread use of solar and other renewable, sustainable energy sources by informing the community about how it benefits the regional economy, environment and human health. We also raise public awareness about supporting public policies that advance solar power and renewable energy.
By providing leadership in renewable energy, we are able to offer information and networking opportunities to the public, public officials, and to the business community. We connect solar energy suppliers and consumers, organize workshops, and act with local, state, and federal organizations to support clean energy options.
SSA’s largest program assisting the public to go solar is the “Bring Solar Home” Campaign. The campaign uses public outreach to connect potential solar adopters with the solar industry.
The program works with the City of San Antonio, local lending institutions, and the local municipally-owned utility CPS Energy to provide the public with information, incentives, and financing options that make it simple and affordable to go solar.
In addition, the education work done by SSA over its thirteen years of operation built the public support that facilitated the process of CPS Energy installing 46 megawatts of centralized solar and signing a contract for 400 additional megawatts of solar.
In honor of SSA founder William Sinkin, CPS Energy dedicated one of its newest solar projects in his namesake. The 19.8 megawatt project, dubbed William R. Sinkin Centennial Solar Farms 1 and 2, will produce enough clean power for an estimated 2,550 average Texas homes annually.
