|shimmering crimson exterior of Ruby City art museum
in San Antonio, Texas
Designed by award winning architect Sir David Adjaye, this small jewel box of a contemporary art museum that is the Ruby City opened in late 2019. What was once the personal collection of the late Linda Pace—a local philanthropist and heiress to a San Antonio hot sauce fortune--includes more than 900 paintings, sculptures, installations, and video works that are heavy with local artists. The name references the exterior crimson coloring of the shimmering building. Viewing the entire displayed collection and the park across the street takes under two hours.
