“It was a complete honor to be chosen to do the poster for the opening of the Tobin Center. The fact that is happening in my hometown makes it even sweeter. San Antonio helped shape my worldview and definitely influenced my art. A big part of my heart will always be Puro San Antonio! said Stidham.

   His celebrated series; the Rock and Roll “Sacred Hearts” collection, features rock icons and other celebrities.  A dramatic, red, flaming heart completes each portrait. This is Stidham's trademark “Sacred Heart.”

For the opening nights celebration poster, Stidham features music icons who all have a place in the Tobin Center’s month long event; Carlos Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ringo Starr, Jason Miraz and the Blues Brothers.

  The month long Opening Nights Celebration begins September 4 and runs through October 19.  Stidham’s artwork can be seen in many businesses and venues around Texas. His work is on display at the popular restaurant, Taco Garage in Alamo Heights.
