Date: Wednesday, October 19th

Time: 9 a.m. to 12 noon

Tuition: $35

Enrollment: 12 min./ 35 max.


The murals of San Antonio’s west side are treasurers hidden in plain sight. Professional tour guide Bonnie Simons will take participants on a tour bus to discover these beautiful works of art. Bonnie’s extensive knowledge of these murals will help them tell a story—one of hurt and beauty, sorrow and optimism, defeat and victory—as told by generations of San Antonio’s artists. In addition to learning about these murals, participants will explore the area around the Guadalupe Plaza, which includes a historic church, a can’t-miss bakery, and more. If you love San Antonio, you will want to share in this experience!
