Art at Our Doorstep

San Antonio Writers and Artists

Nan Cuba (editor), Riley Robinson (editor)

Showcasing the literary and artistic excellence of San Antonio’s acclaimed community of writers and artists

Art at Our Doorstep: San Antonio Writers and Artists pays tribute to the city’s vibrant creative community. A gathering of literary and visual art, the book features poetry, fiction, and nonfiction from the city’s writers, as well as images of painting, sculpture, photography, and installations from the city’s artists. All gathered here are closely associated with the city or have been in years past, and together they represent San Antonio’s inimitable local culture with style, intelligence, and affection.

Collected in one place for the first time, the works of San Antonio’s writers and artists are interspersed, resulting in a book of unusual appeal. Ranging from the abstract to the highly narrative, from the surreal to the hyper real, and from the everyday to the sublime, the art is arresting and the texts equally powerful. This elegant anthology features National Endowment for the Arts fellows, National Book Award finalists, Fulbright fellows, Artpace San Antonio artists-in-residence, best-selling authors, and critically acclaimed artists.

An engaging combination of literary and artistic excellence, and a brilliant testimony to the variety and energy of the city’s creative life, Art at Our Doorstep celebrates in words and images the city of San Antonio and its creative spirit.
