HOUSTON, Tx - Houston's skyline isn't the only thing that keeps jutting up towards the stars, with a world class theater and museum district- the Bayou City is quickly gaining notoriety as an art and culture mecca. So if you don't know where to start this fall, we've got a few suggestions- and they're all in this week's inside story, from the pages of Houstonia.
Now there's a whole lot of theater shows this fall, but some fly higher than others- and Peter Pan 360 is one you definitely don't want to miss. With 15,000 square feet of IMAX projections, all inside a rounded theater- Peter Pan 360 aims to take the audience to Never Never Land, without the whole learning to fly frustration.
If art shows more your style- The Mark Rothko exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts is guaranteed to have people talking and debating- as to just what constitutes fine art. The 60+ piece exhibit follows Rothko through his early years to his final paintings in 1970- completed shortly before his death.
Finally, for those who prefer their art with a touch of functionality, the Contemporary Arts Museum is hosting Texas Design Now, an exhibit of work that examines the design of everyday items in our life. Texas-based designers on display feature cutting edge fashion, accessories and home goods providing some insight into what goes in to designing the world around us.
