We had the good fortune of connecting with Adriana Cisneros and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Adriana, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
In 2016, I founded Art Legacy International. Since the beginning, my main idea has been to promote and support the artworks of emerging artists. Five years later, Art Legacy has become the home of the talented established and emerging artists that make the exhibitions an attraction to people who love art; from art aficionados to sophisticated art investors. I profoundly appreciate the work of artists and the creative process of each artwork; I believe that artists, especially visual artists, are not recognized enough because our society, in general, does not consider the career of an artist as an economic force and an integral part of the economy and social development in our contemporary society. I consider culture, and art especially, a very powerful voice that needs to be heard and recognized, which is the reason for my founding of an art gallery in San Antonio, TX. The gallery’s purpose is to help artists promote and exhibit their artworks. In 2019, we launched our online platform for supporting and promoting the work of contemporary visual artists, worldwide. My main goal and dream is to position the brand internationally among artists and art collectors and continue to helping artists place their artwork in permanent collections in Museums around the world.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
In San Antonio Texas, I take them to The McNay Art Museum, The San Antonio Museum of Art, Blue Star Contemporary Gallery, The Mexican Cultural Institute, The San Antonio Botanical Garden, to visit The Pearl, eat at Hotel Emma and finally a visit to the River Walk.
