Aging with Art

Turning 20 might be the last time you feel truly young. At 21, it’s easy to convince yourself of some newfound adulthood, when you are finally able to use your real driver’s license at the bars (just ignore the look of confusion on your regular bartender’s face). In museum years, though, turning 20 is a much larger milestone. It means you’ve survived the first-decade slump, you’ve ironed out your mission statements, developed strong curatorial practices and gained footing in the local community. For the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, it’s a reason to go back to its roots. For the [email protected] Part 1, the museum invites artists who exhibited at the space in its first 10 years of existence, including David Bates, Linnea Glatt, James Magee and Ludwig Schwarz, among others. See the show during the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at The MAC, 3120 McKinney Ave. More info at the-mac.org.
Sat., May 10, 6-8 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: May 10. Continues through June 28, 2014
