For those Houstonians who have never visited the Heritage Society Museum Gallery, now is the time. Its current exhibition, This WAS Contemporary Art: Fine and Decorative Arts in Houston 1945–1965, is up for less than two more weeks. It was inspired by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston’s inaugural 1948 show, This Is Contemporary Art, and investigates a very vibrant era in the Houston art scene.
Tonight, October 5 at 7pm, Randy Tibbits will explain it all through one painting in a lecture with an incredibly long title: “The Houston Art Scene in Transition and Disruption: Frank Freed’s Opening Night-Contemporary Arts Museum of 1953 & What it Shows Us by Randy Tibbits.” But don’t let that scare you off—the talk is only an hour.
