Arts & Culture

Arts and culture


It was a great year for music, movies, and more, but as a working dad, I don’t get out to see and hear as many things as I’d like to. Nevertheless I felt inspired to cobble together my own personal Best Of list for 2015. The items below aren’t ranked traditionally, but instead are presented more or less chronologically. I hope you enjoy reading, and may 2016 be filled with joyful moments for you as well.

McNay Art Museum

The McNay Art Museum is running a series of weekday art education events and I got a preview of one. It's called ArtFULL Wednesdays, and they happen each Wednesday at noon.

"It gives people their weekly cultural dose," says Rosemary Hickman, the McNay's Semmes Foundation Museum Educator.


The question I had for Ms. Hickman is if someone comes on Wednesday at noon, what can they expect?

For its Holidays in Bloom event, the San Antonio Botanical Garden is dressed up in more than just red and green.  The Botanical Garden's Candace Andrews took me through the 38-acre hilltop gem.

 "It's a wonderful celebration of the holidays here at the garden. It'll run through December 31st. We've got holiday horticulture for everyone to enjoy."


Before Hill Country Opera celebrates its fourth birthday in February, it's celebrating New Year's Eve. 

"We have an event coming up in New Braunfels at the Seekatz Opera House," says Hill Country Opera President Arden Dorn. "We are hoping to convert New Braunfels to old Vienna, Austria."
