McNay says welcome with $6.25 million landscaping makeover that brings the San Antonio art museum out of hiding

The McNay Art Museum will be celebrating something big on Sunday: the very first major renovation of the museum’s grounds in its 67-year history.

The $6.25 million makeover, which took nearly two years to complete, transformed the grounds from an enclosed campus hidden behind wrought-iron fences and dense hedges into a park-like expanse designed to be more welcoming.

The project has been in the works for a long time.
