Curious Reopens with New Exhibit

PALESTINE, OCTOBER 24, 2017 --  Curious, Palestine’s popular arts/science museum, is re-opening on Thurs., Oct. 26, with a new exhibit. It will feature artwork by well-known local artist Janet Staples. The exhibit, Texas Heroes, presents captivating images of 12 famous men and women who were a part of early Texas’ history. 

The exhibit is on loan from the Texas Oil and Gas Association in Austin, TX. It will be on view at Curious October 26 – December 30, 2017. In addition to historical information about these important figures, Texas Heroes programming will include deeper investigations. It will look at such topics as “what is a hero” and “solving a problem”, relating them to each person’s life. 

The programming includes the Exhibit Opening on October 26 at 5:30 pm, the Gallery Talk on November 8 at 5:30 pm, Family Day on December 9 from 10 am – 3 pm, and 3 Saturday drawing classes on October 28, and November 11 and 18, from 10 am – 12 noon.

Curious will continue to feature its popular hands-on science exhibits and the artworks that complement them. They will enhance the problem-solving features in the Texas Heroes exhibits. 

School field trips and group visits are available to see Texas Heroes and other Curious exhibits Mondays through Fridays by reservation.
