Statement of Purpose:
Marion Koogler McNay (1883-1950) was a patron of the arts and a philanthropist who wanted to expose San Antonians to the pleasures of modern art. Thus in her will she dictated the establishment of the McNay Art Museum for the "advancement and enjoyment
of modern art." She left her art collection, her residence, the surrounding 23 acres of land and a major portion of her wealth to create the McNay, which opened in 1954.
Highlights & Collections:
The collection, which includes works by Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Edward Hopper and Georgia O'Keeffe, now numbers more than 7,000 objects. In addition, the McNay boasts a significant collection of 19th- and 20th-century prints and
drawings and is home to one of the world's great theatre arts collections.
