SAN ANTONIO – Adults have a new place where they can go to relieve some stress and enjoy art at the latest destination in downtown San Antonio.
On Friday, co-founder Nicole Jensen joined KSAT for a Q&A to discuss the story behind Hopscotch.
There are 14 installations from more than 40 artists, including local artists.
“So, each room is the piece of art, and a lot of it interacts with the guest, so it changes. You become part of the art installation,” Jensen said.
Jensen said coming up with a name for the immersive art installation was hard, but ultimately decided on Hopscotch because it embodied what she and her co-founder wanted to do.
“You know, we all think of hopscotch as a fun, playful game when you’re a kid. And a lot of the inspiration behind our gallery was that adults don’t really have a lot of spaces where they can just go forget their troubles and feel like kids again and play and interact,” Jensen said.
Hopscotch is adults only after 7 p.m.
During the fall, the gallery is open from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 9 p.m. on Sundays.
