The Museum District is a hub for all things sensory: Beautiful art, sunny sidewalks, and delicious food await. One of the best spots to stop for a bite is Lucille’s, a homey restaurant serving refined Southern comfort dishes and handcrafted cocktails. They’re recognized throughout town as a favorite, from weekend brunch to their monthly wine dinners. This month, you’re invited to travel to Spain with a 7-course tapas wine dinner.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, already one of the premier cultural institutions in the nation, has big plans for the future. A 14-acre redevelopment of the MFAH campus is currently underway; it’s the largest such cultural project in the country today with an eye on a 2020 completion. But Houstonians needn’t wait that long to enjoy what the MFAH has in store. A first look at those plans will come into focus on Saturday, May 20 with the inauguration of an all-new Glassell School of Art.
On this day of love, we celebrate not only the special people in our lives, but also the beautiful city in which we make some of our best memories. Houston is a stunning place—a sprawling giant with distinct and memorable corners. It is Space City, where we celebrate the next frontier. It is Bayou City, which sometimes floods but always comes back stronger than ever. It is Clutch City. It is Astros City. It is the city we call home, and the city we’re so proud to welcome you to.
There are so many reasons to love Houston—here are our favorite few:
It’s true. The MFAH’s wildly popular exhibit, The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, has been extended till Sunday, March 18.
In March, a groundbreaking exhibition is making its way to the United States for the first time. Centuries of royal treasures from Jodhpur, India — masterpieces and relics never before seen outside of palace walls — will showcase nearly four centuries of art from the kingdom of Marwar-Jodhpur, one of India’s largest princely states. The exhibition’s first stop? The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Last night, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) debuted their latest exhibition, a comprehensive survey of Brooklyn-based artist Christopher Knowles. The show, Christopher Knowles: In A Word, paints a broad picture of the artist’s work, brushing across text, sound, painting, drawing, sculpture, and recorded performance.
We can all agree that the best gifts are the unique ones—the memorable surprises, the unexpected treasures.
Discerning shoppers know that Houston is home to some of the best shopping centers and districts in the nation. This holiday season, we’d like to direct your attention to one of the city’s most memorable little shopping corners: The Museum Shop at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
