    Your Generosity Has Changed Your World

    Since 2003, our Foundation has raised over $38 million dollars from individuals and organizations in our community. That money was reinvested to enhance your San Antonio River experience. Our project partners —San Antonio River Authority, Bexar CountyCity of San Antonio, and US Army Corps of Engineers— have invested over $384 million in river improvements for our community. Together, our investments have added over $1.5 billion in economic impact through adjacent private investment and development.

    Thank You for Your Continued Support

    I-35 Overpass near Camden Street

    It’s hard not to smile at Philadelphia artist Donald Lipski’s school of giant fish swimming through the sky beneath the interstate overpass. The cluster of 25 seven-foot-long creatures of hand-painted fiberglass resin are anatomically correct models of long-eared sunfish, native to the river. Impressive by day and stunningly lit from within at night, the glowing fish are a beacon from blocks away, adding color and levity to a once neglected downtown area. A 26th fish is on display in The DoSeum, San Antonio's Museum for Kids, offering an up-close view of the installation’s vibrant detailing.

    Viva La Confluencia: A Celebration of Nature, Poetry, and Music

    Presented by Infrarrealista Review in partnership with the San Antonio River Foundation, “Viva La Confluencia: A Celebration of Nature, Poetry, and Music” will be held on Saturday, April 27th at Confluence Park from 3pm-8pm. This event is free and open to the public.

    Connor Nielsen, an Austin-area poet, will lead a workshop on ecopoetics from 3-5pm, encouraging attendees to pull inspiration from Confluence Park’s scenery. The workshop will be held at the Estela Avery Educational Center. This workshop is recommended for ages 15 and up.

    After the workshop, attendees are encouraged to stay for a reading in the BHP Pavilion at 6pm. This reading features Jacinto Cardona, Dee Lalo Garcia, Connor Nielsen, and Camille Sauers. Attendees of the workshop are encouraged to read their work as well.

    Poshlust, a San Antonio duo (S. Phelps and Noah Escamilla), will be closing out the night with a musical performance at 7:30pm in the BHP Pavilion.

    At Infrarrealista Review, we strive to create programming that facilitates conversations between a variety of mediums and interests.  “Viva La Confluencia” is a celebration of musicians and writers in conversation with nature and place through language and sound.

    Infrarrealista Review is a Central Texas literary nonprofit that publishes creative work by Texans. We prioritize art that pushes against the borders of highbrow and lowbrow.
