Just in time for summer exploring, there’s a new exhibit at the Witte Museum called the H-E-B Body Adventure powered by University Health System.
Curator of Archeology and Health Bryan Bayles calls it a “brand new, four-story, indoor-outdoor interactive experience that’s all about health IQ, empowerment and wellness.”
While that sounds a bit nerdy and wonkish, the actuality is anything but. During my visit I saw dozens of children going from exhibit to exhibit, interacting as they were supposed to, and very likely, learning all the while.
A film festival with a twist will hit the big screen soon here in San Antonio, and Urban 15 puts it on.
“The Josiah Media Festival is a film festival exclusively for young people 21 and under,” said Jonathan Anderson, the festival’s project manager.
“It mainly receives submissions that are from the states, but we are getting an increasing number of international entries each year," he said. "We received more international submissions this year alone than all of the previous years combined, and this is the eighth year that we are doing this festival."
Fredericksburg’s Pioneer Museum hosts another concert on Saturday night. It's Hal Ketchum, and you've probably heard his biggest hit, "Small Town Saturday Night." That one song propelled Ketchum to instant stardom, but he got a late start on the whole showbiz thing.
“I was a 38-year-old cabinetmaker," he said. "To have a number one country record--I don’t think it had been done on that level before.”
The singer-songwriter has been plying his trade quite successfully, with 15 top ten hits since then. As he explained, he somehow finds time to work with wood, too.
