Texas Uprising: Selections from the Texas Sculpture Group Part II features indoor sculpture work to contrast the outdoor sculpture selections currently on display at the San Antonio Botanical Garden.  This component of the exhibition is curated by Lilly Wei and features artists from the Texas Sculpture Group.

Lilly Wei is a New York-based independent curator, essayist and critic who writes for several publications in the United States and abroad. A frequent contributor to Art in America, she is a contributing editor at ARTnews and Art Asia Pacific. She has also been the essayist for many exhibition catalogues and brochures on contemporary art. Wei has served on numerous advisory panels and review committees, including the Pew Fellowship awards and is a member of several boards, including the International Association of Art Critics (AICA/USA), Art in General, and Art Omi, an international artist residency program. She has been a guest lecturer and visiting critic at art institutions nationally and internationally. One of her most recent large-scale curatorial projects was the exhibition, The Invisible Thread, Spirit of Buddhism in Contemporary Art, at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island, New York which was part of The Buddhist Project, a consortium of exhibitions and programs exploring Buddhist influence in contemporary American culture. She was also a curator of the first International Biennale of Lodz in Poland. Wei has an M.A. in art history from Columbia University.

The Texas Sculpture Group is one of three affiliates operating in cooperation with the International Sculpture Group (ISC.) This gathering of professional sculptors, dealers, curators and collectors formed to promote both public and art-world awareness through exhibitions, a web site, symposiums and technical demonstrations.
