With a plethora of frame and mat samples, Deck The Walls can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24"x36" pieces are well under $100), and sports jerseys shine (most for under $350). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. Deck The Walls' lifetime guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
Now that you've finished celebrating New Year's in Paris, you'll need a way to preserve all that art you "borrowed" from the Louvre. Today's Groupon gets you $100 worth of custom framing at Fastframe for $40. Fastframe will frame pretty much anything, having once framed a 13-foot anaconda skin—use up to three Groupons per order if you need to frame larger items such as Soviet-era propaganda murals, conceptual art installations, and annoying little brothers.
Awestrike yourself by strolling through current exhibitions such as An Impressionist Sensibility: The Halff Collection, a rare private collection of period works from artists including John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, and Theodore Robinson; or scratch your beard in the presence of TruthBeauty, an exposition of the pictorialism movement that blended photography with painting and drawing. McNay also preserves a large permanent collection, including local Southwest art and the expansive, unusual, 9,500-piece Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts. After even one visit, you'll become so art knowledgeable that children will run up to you on the street and beg you to join the art history club they started with money they won on TV game shows.
The Witte Museum was born from many minds seeking a singular goal: to create a public forum that promoted lifelong learning. From a $65,000 gift bequeathed to the city of San Antonio after Alfred Witte's death in 1921, this museum of science, natural history, and South Texas heritage was built along the San Antonio River and named after the late Witte's parents.
Today, the Witte Museum still pursues this wide range of knowledge with hands-on scientific and historical exhibits. The museum's long-term features portray the natural wonders of southern Texas, including ancient rock art from the lower Pecos, examples of local ecology, and dinosaur fossils found locally while trying to uncover lost time capsules.
