San Antonio Museum of Art Rocks With New Chinese Acquisition

Texans like to say that “everything is big in Texas.” But the latest six-and-a-half-ton acquisition by the San Antonio Museum of Art gives credence to the familiar saying.

The city of Wuxi, China, gave the city a 12-foot Taihu rock to help promote Chinese art and culture in the Alamo city. The massive rock was installed in the pavilion behind the museum prior to the recent unveiling.
