The Look Ahead: Jogging, Kandinsky and Lawndale
We’re dissolving two of our favorite columns, Your Regular Scoop of Houston and Procrastinator’s Plan, and giving them a new look this year. Gone is the single serving of events in Houston. Here is a five-times-a-week battery of things to do. We will publish a few events every morning. If we’ve missed something let us know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @TheLoopScoop.
Four New Exhibitions Opening at Lawndale Art Center
Where: Museum District [4912 Main St.]
When: Friday, January 28th from 6PM to 8:30PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: The Lawndale Art Center’s Website
Some exciting art is being shown at Lawndale this coming Friday. What art? Why, “When I saw you last…” by Josephine Durkin, “Natural Resources” by The Bridge Club, “Working Space” by Hollis Cooper, and “M4M” by Mark Aguhar. The artists’ Websites alone are intriguing, I can hardly wait to see their creations at the Lawndale Art Center.
The Blue Rider: Kandinsky and Music
Where: Wortham Center [501 Texas St., 77002]
When: Saturday, January 29th, 8PM
How much: $25, $35 or $45
Scoop’d from: Press Release
From Da Camera of Houston, we have the opportunity to experience a visual and audio force with The Blue Rider. Think of it as that Pink Floyd laser show you always wanted to see at the planetarium, but even more haunting (and without lasers).
Chevron Houston Marathon
Where: Houston [All over the dang place]
When: Sunday, January 30th, 7AM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: General Knowledge
Here’s the deal. If you live anywhere near the downtown area, you’re going to be only a few steps away from the Chevron Houston Marathon route. Those few steps are nothing compared to what these runners will be putting themselves through, so walk on down and cheer them on. Even better, take the opportunity to volunteer. The organizers are always looking for more bodies to help out.
