The World of Frida exhibition, on view July 8 - September 16 2018, celebrated the culture, style, and persona of visionary painter Frida Kahlo, an artist who continues to inspire with her story of love, adventure, and pain. The World of Frida garnered record breaking attendance and overwhelming community support, with over two thousand people in attendance during the opening celebrations, and almost twelve thousand visitors to the gallery during the length of the show. The World of Frida weaved juried and invitational shows that reference the artist with a national, traveling photography exhibit titled Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray that made a stop in Walnut Creek after traveling across North America. Hungarian-born Muray—who met Kahlo in a chance encounter in Mexico in 1931 and became her lover and friend—shot some of the most iconic color and black and white images of the artist that exist. Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray was organized by the Nickolas Muray Photo Archives and was circulated through Guest Curator Traveling Exhibitions.
To engage museum professionals across all stages of their careers in building vibrant communities of networking, knowledge exchange, and resource sharing.

Terminal 136 (formally UTSA Satellite Space Art Gallery) is the off-campus gallery of the Department of Art and Art History of the University of Texas at San Antonio, located in the Southtown Art District. Since the Satellite Space (our previous gallery)'s first exhibition in 1993, UTSA's downtown presence has become one of San Antonio’s most respected venues for challenging contemporary art. Graduate students typically have their MFA Thesis exhibitions at Terminal 136, and twice a year we put out a call to invite students, local artists, as well as nationally recognized artists to submit exhibition proposals. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
