Ruby City is a 10,000 square foot contemporary art center in San Antonio, Texas, dedicated to providing a space for the city’s thriving creative community to experience works by both local and internationally-acclaimed artists.
Envisioned in 2007 by the late collector, philanthropist, and artist Linda Pace, Ruby City presents works from Pace’s own collection of more than 800 paintings, sculptures, installations, and video works.
The new building, designed by renowned architect Sir David Adjaye OBE and slated for completion later this year is part of a growing campus, which also includes Chris Park, a one-acre public green space named in memory of Pace’s son, and Studio, an auxiliary exhibition space which presents curated shows and programming throughout the year.
Ruby City is free and open to the public.
Ruby City is committed to the charitable vision of its founder. Guided by the donor’s conviction that contemporary art is essential to a dynamic society, Ruby City fosters the creation, presentation and understanding of innovative expression through contemporary art.

Linda Pace Foundation was founded in 2003 as the owner and steward of Pace’s collection. Guided by its donor’s conviction that contemporary art is essential to a dynamic society, Linda Pace Foundation fosters the creation, presentation and understanding of innovative expression through contemporary art. In addition to its exhibition spaces Ruby City and Studio, Linda Pace Foundation shares its collection through loans to museums and institutions around the world. The Foundation also actively acquires new works each year, which, echoing the themes and character of Pace’s own collecting, reflect a feminist perspective, engage social issues and consider aspects of spirituality and beauty.
