Chris Park at Ruby City

October 27, 2018 6:00 pm - October 27, 2018 9:00 pm

For the second time this year, Ruby City collaborates with Trinity University’s KRTU 91.7FM for a captivating performance on the evening of Saturday, October 27th. The free event features a performance by conceptual composer and musician Nathan Felix, who activates Chris Park and Studio with various instruments including a six-sided keyboard.

The fascinating performance by Felix serves as the ideal backdrop to enjoy a lovely fall night, surrounded by the serene landscape of Chris Park and intriguing art on view in Studio’s female-focused exhibition Reclaimed. Complimentary refreshments are served, including Gem & Bolt Mezcal and food by The Box Street Social.

Earlier this year, Felix won the Artist Foundation’s Tobin Prize for Artistic Excellence People’s Choice Award; his innovative style of introducing new audiences to classical music has been widely praised in San Antonio and beyond. This musical evening gives the public a rare opportunity to experience Felix’s music within the context of Chris Park and Studio.

During this evening, guests will have the opportunity to see part of the Linda Pace Foundation’s internationally-acclaimed permanent collection at Studio, and catch a glance of the nearly completed contemporary art center Ruby City across the street. Designed by world-renowned architect Sir David Adjaye, Ruby City will display the Linda Pace Foundation’s permanent collection and is scheduled to open to the public in the fall of 2019, admission will be free and open to the public.
