Oh to be a teenager again!

Before I tell you more, I want to share what's coming up at the Asia Society Texas Center tonight, October 24 from 6-9. They're celebrating their fall exhibition with a Night Market. It's free! They're offering (and I quote): "A festive, family-friendly night of food, crafts and more inspired by Japan." I plan on being there this evening.

On Saturday, October 25 at 11 AM there will be a members' brunch with Bidou Yamaguchi, the sculptor whose work is showing at the Asia Society Texas. Finally at 3 PM there will be an artist talk by the artist.

And if that's not enough Monet and the Seine opens at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston on Sunday, October 26th!

It's going to be a full weekend again!

Look at what the Museum of Fine Arts Houston has coming up for teens!
This is almost too good to be true!
