TuesdayToday women are treated the same as men, earn equal pay for equal work and there is no such thing as a glass ceiling. Yeah, happy April Fools' Day. But we're not fooling when we say that the Women's Museum is open late tonight and admission is free from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Fair Park museum currently hosts exhibits such as Finding Our History: Milestones in Women's History, Words That Changed Our Lives, Mothers of Invention and displays paying homage to women in the arts, comedy, athletics and politics. The Women's Museum, 3800 Parry Ave., Fair Park. Call 214-915-0860.
Wednesday, April 2
WednesdayWhen we think of clay, we usually think of Gumby and bricks, and generally some combination of the two. Damn cheerful, pointy-headed green freak. We definitely don't think of the future of contemporary art, which seems instead to be digital and sterile, about pixels instead of passion. But two North Texas clay artists believe that clay--in all its organic beauty--has always had a place in art. It makes sense: Wherever there's a school art class, there's some kid making a lopsided bowl from clay. And clay as a fine art has evolved from that. During the McKinney Avenue Contemporary's twice-monthly Art Talk, Christopher Hart and Chris Gray, clay artists and graduates of the master's of fine arts program at the University of North Texas, discuss the future of clay and their own clay works. The talk starts at 7 p.m. but is preceded by a reception at 6:30 p.m. Admission to both is free. McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 3120 McKinney Ave. Call 214-953-1212.
