Westside Pews Project

The Westside Development Corporation (WDC) Westside Pews is an initiative launched by the Westside Development Corporation to promote public art from the Westside Community. The Westside Development Corporation accepted applications from artists interested in participating in the project until artists were selected for the 14 available pews.

The Westside Pews Initiative is transforming pews salvaged from Jerusalem Presbyterian Church prior to its demolition into public art featuring artists from the Westside and across the City of San Antonio.

The pews are on display at the Westside Education and Training Center, 563 SW 40th Street, San Antonio, TX 78237. The pew sale proceeds will benefit scholarships for para-professionals to become certified teachers as well as WDC operations.
