American Airlines brings Spanish masterpieces to San Antonio
American Airlines Cargo transported priceless Spanish art from around the globe to San Antonio TX (USA), for the city’s tri-centennial celebrations. Works by El Greco, Velazquez, Goya, Picasso and other masters are being displayed at the San Antonio Museum of Art until 16 September, in a show entitled 'Spain: 500 Years of Spanish Painting from the Museums of Madrid. American Airlines Cargo is the exhibition's official sponsor.
Transporting these unique pieces of art, many of which have never been shown in the USA before, required a special degree of care. Sandy Scott, director of American's European and Asian cargo operations, pointed out that "the project required our team members to work together in a creative way, while also partnering seamlessly with companies in four countries."
