    Highest Heaven
    Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection
    October 23, 2016 — January 22, 2017

Highest Heaven explores a time when art flourished in the Iberian colonial possessions of the Altiplano (high plains) of South America, which stretch from northern Argentina to Peru. Through approximately 107 paintings, sculptures, ivories, objects in silver, and furniture, the exhibition traces the development and spread of the Catholic faith through the creation and use of religious art for devotion and instruction. The objects are drawn from the distinguished collection of Roberta and Richard Huber of New York City, built over the course of three decades.

Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection is organized by the San Antonio Museum of Art.
