It’s a program created by the Patrick Heath Public Library in Boerne and it’s got a very retro feel. Hearkening back to the Beatles album, it's called the Magical History Tour.
“What we are trying to do is to introduce our patrons, and anyone else who’s interested, to the history of the region," said Heath librarian Robin Stauber. To do so they’ve created these tours, and Stauber said they have gone all over the place.
“We’ve been to New Braunfels, we’ve been to Bandera, we’ve been to Castroville, we've been into San Antonio to do some things there,” Stauber said.
San Antonio has recently gained another ballet company. It’s called Ballet Latino de San Antonio.
"This is a neo-classical company that fuses classical ballet with Latin rhythm," said Mayra Worthen, who is the founder and artistic director.
“We present the classic movement, but with the Latin flavors and music," she said. "Now, that’s not all we do, but that is the style. It’s all over the place, as far as the music goes, but most of it has the Latin rhythm to it.”
It’s called Flatland, and it's the new exhibit at Museo Guadalupe. To get a handle on it, I spoke with Guadalupe Cultural Center Executive Director and Curator Patty Ortiz. It turns out it's a pretty complex idea for an exhibition.
“Flatland all began with something I was noticing about contemporary art. It was this urge from artists to start using this flat imagery. Flat colors, flat design," Ortiz states.
But this is where Flatland also takes on a whole different meaning.
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.
