Current exhibitions include "Jennifer Ling Datchuk: Making Women" and "Greg Reuter: The Studio," among other exhibits.


<big> Storytellers invited to share at 'Verbal Ink' every first Friday </big>

A unique local event invites local to tell stories and possibly win some cash.

"Verbal Ink delivers five performances from storytellers who write a story around a theme," their website says.

The first Verbal Ink event of the year takes place this Friday, Jan 3, at the Art Museum of South Texas.

The story telling starts at 7:30 p.m., and the theme is courage.

The lineup of story tellers this Friday includes, Berto Garcia, Yolanda Lopes-Borja, Omar Lopez, Michelle Grismer, and Stefan Sencerz.

You can apply to be a story teller here, and find the monthly themes and lineups here.

Verbal Ink is brought to you by The Art Museum of South Texas, Manifest Creative Works, House of Rock, and Lorelei Brewing Company.

<big>First Artwalk of the decade is this Friday </big>

2020 is here to stay. At least for this year. Artwalk is also here to stay.

The first official Artwalk of the new decade is Jan. 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m..

The festivities are centered around Artesian Park downtown.

A long standing tradition in the Coastal Bend, Artwalk is meant to bring the creatives of the Coastal Bend together for some fun.

"It's where Downtown comes alive with music, art vendors, food trucks serving up South Texas fare, and art galleries featuring local and national artists," the Artwalk website says.

Artwalk is sponsored by H-E-B.
