Commissioned by the San Antonio River Authority as part of the inaugural Be River Proud Symposium.
Security Blanket is a temporary art installation that invites visitors to take a moment of respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As the title implies, the installation, a large-scale quilt, is meant to be used for picnicking and social gatherings while celebrating our collective sense of community and solidarity. The quilt was created in partnership with artist Nanako Kishi and highlights the natural beauty of San Antonio’s waterways. As part of the installation, Khoshbin and Kishi will host an event on Sunday, September 26 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Meet the artists and learn about edible plants from horticulturist Michelle Gorham that you may see in the San Antonio River basin as you enjoy food and music in a beautiful park setting. Bring a picnic and join us!
