THOUGHTS FOR THIS WEEK
Our Houston museums are busy, busy, busy! There are tours, exhibition openings, special events, classes, and free entry days and nights. For a peek at 19 museums and more information than you could want, go to the Houston Museum District website, here. Coming next month (starting next Tuesday, October 2), there is a special five-week class for adults at Bayou Bend called “Behind the Ropes” in which attendees will become “antique detectives.” It’s taking place every Thursday in October; more info about it is below. For families: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s central campus hosts a weekly “Family Zone” from 1-4pm every Sunday and the Children’s Museum of Houston is offering free family fun on Thursdays from 5-8pm and daily events for kids 0-12 years old.
I’m thrilled because WOMEN are being highlighted by our city’s cultural organizations over the next several months. Perhaps this will be an ongoing trend? Below are upcoming events I found – please let me know by reply email if you know of any others.
Once again, the arts lead the way in showing the best of humanity! Women should be celebrated and these events (and more) are wonderful ways to do that.
And, finally, a note about this week’s VIDEO PICK: it’s longer than usual, but I thought it was so cool, I had to share! It’s the story of our beloved Astroworld and I felt it made a great complement to my Astroworld party PICK below. Thanks to Kevin Perjurer of Defunctland for creating it. See more of their cool shows about spots no longer here on their popular YouTube channel.
