2018 Museum Recap

So much happened in 2018, we committed the cardinal sin of blogging and let it go dormant. Returning with a vengeance in 2019 — we have lots to share!

It doesn’t appear we made it outside of Texas all year, which is uncharacteristic, but we certainly made our way around the huge state and saw a lot of amazing art museums, galleries, and installations in 2018:

Blanton Museum of Art (Ellsworth Kelly’s Austin & permanent collection) — Austin, TX
Dallas Museum of Art (Laura Owens exhibit & permanent collection) — Dallas, TX
Downtown Murals — Brenham, TX
The Flower Vault — San Antonio, TX
From the HeART Gallery — Galveston, TX
The Museum of Fine Arts — Houston, TX
