In 2018, San Antonio will celebrate its 300th anniversary, and as part of that celebration, the Alamo is excited to announce the Alamo Tricentennial Lecture Series!  

Each month, the Alamo will bring you experts who will explore the events, people, and themes that shaped the history of the Alamo, San Antonio, and Texas.

Alamo Conservator, Pam Rosser, has studied the 18th century frescos that still exist on the interior walls of the Alamo church for over 19 years. Using different means of photography and lighting, Pam has mapped out the 250 year old frescos that are not visible to the human eye under normal lighting conditions. In this one hour session, Pam will discuss her work and explain the purposes, techniques and materials used to create this beautiful art.
