SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 5, 2018) – The City’s Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) is taking Restored by Light to Mission San Juan (9101 Graf Rd.) on Friday, October 12. This will be a onetime event, in celebration of San Antonio’s Tricentennial. Previous Restored by Light events, held at Mission Concepción and Mission San Jose, projected a window through which the once brightly painted missions could be seen. Unlike those Missions, there is no evidence of historic frescoes for Mission San Juan. Using the inspiration of our rich history and culture, local artist Louis Vega Trevino has created vivid modern frescoes that will illuminate Mission San Juan. Open to the public, Restored by Light – Reinspired will begin at 6:00 p.m. with family-friendly activities and tours of the Mission, with the show beginning at 7:45 p.m. Multiple food trucks will be on site and craft brews by Southerleigh will be available for purchase. Restored by Light is presented by OHP, Brooks, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, San Antonio 300, and Freeman.
Note: Free parking and shuttle service available at 8700 block of Mission Road at Acequia. Due to construction, Graf Rd. is currently closed. Access is available from the west, by taking S.E. Military Dr. to Mission Rd. For more information, go to: www.RestoredByLight.com
