Wonderland of the Americas

SAN ANTONIO – Wonderland of the Americas and Spare Parts will host a free fine arts fair at the mall on July 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This year will mark the third year of the fair — which is dedicated to helping teachers bring the arts to area school children. The event is open to the public as well.

Wonderland is located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Loop 410, on the city’s Northwest Side.

Spare Parts, which was founded in 2011, works with various agencies, businesses and individuals to supply teachers with art materials and supplies. The group tries to work most closely with teachers at schools that have seen arts funding decrease as a result of budget cuts.

As the name suggests, the focus is on re-using materials that would otherwise be thrown away.

“The San Antonio community cannot allow the arts to be cut from our schools due to lack of funding or diminishing resources,” says Mary Elizabeth Cantu, founder of Spare Parts. “The Third Annual Free Fine Arts Fair falls right in line with the Mayor’s SA2020 goals for growing the art and cultural profile of San Antonio.”

“Wonderland of the Americas is proud to support Spare Parts’ commitment to cultivate arts education and community,” adds Oscar Montemayor, director of leasing for Wonderland. “We are excited to celebrate the third annual free Fine Arts Fair and establish a forum for great minds to unite in arts education.”
