Thirty five local kids were asked what it means to be from San Antonio…Texas, and the world. And then they were given art supplies. That artwork now hangs in the Institute of Texan Cultures in an exhibit called “Little Texan, Big World.”

Guitarist and Vocalist Austin Jimison is all smiles and laughter as he and the rest of the members of Sioux & Fox sit in our studios at TPR. Josiah even calls him a "Chatty Kathy" from his never-ending liveliness. With indie music influences such as Modest Mouse and Local Natives, the band has a fresh, youthful sound that they wish to spread to everyone, young and old.

From a retro celebration on the west side, to hot jazz, to a fully air-conditioned musical,  there's plenty to do in the Alamo City this weekend.

First off tonight--the Guadalupe Theater looks good for its age, but let's face it: it's turning 75.  Executive Director Christina Balli explains on how they're marking its birthday.

The rules were clear; to participate, you needed four things:

A floral-printed dress (knee length), a shawl (red or pink), artificial flowers in your hair (three, at a minimum), but most important of all, of course, was the unibrow.

Hundreds of people came together at the Dallas Museum of Art Thursday night, in an attempt to set the record for the largest gathering ever of people dressed like Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

The San Antonio Museum of Art is showing a free movie on Friday night that has, in the years since its release,  gained cult status.  Given the exploding reputation of the Movie’s producers, its reputation has grown with time. 

"I think that now it's a classic. We can say it's a cult movie for sure."

SAMA's Emily Dujour is talking about a movie that helped give Jeff Bridges cult status: The Big Lebowski. It's apparent from the first scene that you're watching a Coen Brothers movie.
