Serving the Community for Over 70 Years!

The Coliseum Advisory Board commissioned this mural to celebrate the spirit of the Bexar County Community Arenas and the diversity of events that have filled our grounds since the Coliseum was constructed in 1949. The process began in 2017 with a competition inviting artists to submit a proposal and the Art Committee selected Mr. Garin Baker. Baker then began a collaborative review process attending several signature events and perusing archives. “The completed mural consists of twelve 5-foot by 10-foot hand painted sections seamlessly installed on site, expressing the joy of humanity into a montage vision filled with excitement and spirit for all who visit the Coliseum and their many wonderful and colorful events,” Baker said. 

The mural is just one of the more recent additions to the Freeman Coliseum’s ever-expanding art collection. The Coliseum Advisory Board believes art plays a significant role in what makes the Freeman Coliseum experience unique. Derrick Howard, the Freeman Coliseum’s Executive Director, remarked, “It is important to incorporate art into the Freeman Coliseum; so many significant memories have been created here and, by including public art, we are capturing the collective memory of our history, society and culture.” 

The mural is on display outside of the main entrance to the Freeman Coliseum.
