PALESTINE, OCTOBER 24, 2017 -- Curious, Palestine’s popular arts/science museum, is holding a Gallery Talk in conjunction with its Texas Heroes art exhibit that features works by well-known local artist Janet Staples.

To be held on Wednesday, November 8, at 5:30 pm, the Gallery Talk will feature the opportunity to visit with popular experts about the exhibit, about leadership, about early Texas history and about problem-solving. These include artist Janet Staples, who will talk about her artwork; Palestine mayor Steve Presley, who will talk about leadership and what makes a hero; and education leader Lucinda Presley, who will talk about problem-solving for the Texas Heroes and its use by Curious and by visitors in their daily lives.

Adults ages 18 and over are invited. There will be alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and hors d’oeuvres served. Participants will have opportunities to develop their problem-solving skills in practical activities and in museum’s exhibits, in addition to discussing their use of these skills with experts.
