On September 7th, 2018, the McNay Art Museum was delighted to present Art Vinyl: Spin It Your Way, a fun and fresh after-hours event organized by the McNay Contemporary Collectors Forum (MCCF). The event was the first of its kind at the Museum.
Nearly 300 unique works of art on vinyl by over 100 regional and national artists were displayed across the walls of Leeper Auditorium and available for purchase during the evening. There was an air of mystery to the art pieces as the artists remained anonymous until the time of purchase. Art Incorporated, a proud sponsor of Art Vinyl: Spin It Your Way, framed ten of the vinyls on display at the event as well as supplied all the Mylar bags for packaging all vinyls once purchased. Art Incorporated is determined to provide the highest level of artistic integrity when it comes to the custom framing you need for your art.
As guests entered the lobby upon check-in they were greeted with Ethiopian Jazz and Brazilian Bossa Novas & Sambas while enjoying deliciously aromatic specialty coffees furnished by Espresso Amore Mio Mobile Barista Bar. Everyone was also invited to take a selfie at the Art Vinyl wall donated by ChileMedia.com.
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference was shaking up their new Signature Cocktail for 2019, Call Me, Honey, so guests could be the first to taste this delicious drink. This citrus meets spice elixir offering a sweet finish is sure to be a favorite at the 2019 San Antonio Cocktail Conference. In addition to drinks, Bohanan’s and Peggy’s on the Green were serving an assortment of passed savory hors d’oeuves. And Chocollazo, San Antonio’s favorite chocolate shop provided unbelievably stunning Artisian Chocolates worthy of an art event to please all chocolate & art lovers.
While browsing exclusive vinyl art, eating amazing food and drinking delicious cocktails & specialty coffee drinks from some of San Antonio finest artists, guests were entertained by DJ Rikko who was spinning the night away with lively dance music. There was even a custom dance floor created by San Antonio-based artist Raul Gonzalez designed for maximum dance-groove enjoyment.
This event was both fun and entertaining for a great cause, highlighting the vinyl revolution and the MCCF’s love of art collecting.
