Houston Grand Opera Presents:
Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly
Houston Grand Opera proudly presents Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, January 23, 2015 - February 8, 2015, at the Wortham Theater.
Sung in Italian with projected English translation.
When Puccini heard the story of a young Japanese girl who sacrifices
everything for a faithless U.S. Navy lieutenant, he knew he had found a
winning idea for a new opera and immediately began work on Madame
Butterfly. It would become one of the most beloved operas of all time.
Puccini’s score, infused with atmospheric Eastern motifs, is mesmerizing.
From the passionate Act I love duet, to Butterfly’s steadfast declaration of
her love, “Un bel di,” to the tender, anticipatory beauty of the “Humming
Chorus,” this is opera for the ages.
Stationed in Nagasaki, American Lieutenant B. F. Pinkerton enters into a
temporary marriage with Cio-Cio-San (Butterfly), a fifteen-year-old Japanese girl. Butterfly naively supposes that the marriage is permanent;
when her husband leaves her, he promises to return and she believes
him. When he does come back three years later, it is with his new American wife, Kate; they have learned through Sharpless, the American consul, that Butterfly has borne Pinkerton’s son—and they have come to take
the child. Butterfly responds in the only way her sense of honor will allow.
Tickets are available for purchase online until 4 p.m. CST on the day
of the performance (Noon CST on the day of a matinee performance).
Please call 713-228-OPERA (6737) or 800-62-OPERA (800-626-7372)
if you have questions or have other ticketing needs. Tickets can also be
purchased in person at the HGO box office located at 550 Prairie Street.
Box office hours during HGO Season Repertory: Monday-Friday 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday–Noon to curtain (performance days only).

After Alberta Ballet’s performances, Houston Ballet heads to Alberta from
April 30 - May 9, 2015, to complete the exchange. The company will
perform Mr. Welch’s epic ballet La Bayadère in Edmonton and Calgary.
This model of reciprocal exchange is one of the innovative ways Houston
Ballet and Alberta Ballet are keeping large-scale touring of dance alive.
“Love Lies Bleeding is a work that’s thrilling to watch, and it beautifully
captures the magic of Sir Elton John’s music” remarks Mr. Welch.

What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions:
by Randall Munroe -- From the creator of the wildly popular webcomic xkcd, hilarious
and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask.
Millions of people visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe’s iconic webcomic.
His stick-figure drawings about science, technology, language, and love have a large
and passionate following. Fans of xkcd ask Munroe a lot of strange questions. What
if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90 percent the speed of light? How fast can you
hit a speed bump while driving and live? If there was a robot apocalypse, how long
would humanity last? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores
over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations, and
consults with nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and
hilarity, complemented by signature xkcd comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion. The book features new and
never-before-answered questions, along with updated and expanded versions of the
most popular answers from the xkcd website. What If? will be required reading for xkcd
fans and anyone who loves to ponder the hypothetical.
The Bone Clocks: A Novel: by David Mitchell -- Following a terrible fight
with her mother over her boyfriend, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her
family and her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: A sensitive child once
contacted by voices she knew only as “the radio people,” Holly is a lightning rod for
psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions
and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought
to life. For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics—and their
enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that
leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every
decade of Holly’s life, affecting all the people Holly loves—even the ones who are not
yet born. A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a
conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting on the war in Iraq, a middle-aged
writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list—all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the
nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace
and extraordinary wonder. Rich with character and realms of possibility, The Bone
Clocks is a kaleidoscopic novel that begs to be taken apart and put back together by
a writer The Washington Post calls “the novelist who’s been showing us the future of
fiction.” An elegant conjurer of interconnected tales, a genre-bending daredevil, and
a master prose stylist, David Mitchell has become one of the leading literary voices of
his generation. His hypnotic new novel, The Bone Clocks, crackles with invention and
wit and sheer storytelling pleasure—it is fiction at its most spellbinding.
Make It Ahead: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook: by Ina Garten -- For the
first time, trusted and beloved cookbook author Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa,
answers the number one question she receives from cooks: Can I make it ahead? If
you’ve ever found yourself stuck in front of the stove at your own party, scrambling
to get everything to the table at just the right moment, Ina is here to let you in on her
secrets! Thanks to twenty years of running a specialty food store and fifteen years
writing cookbooks, she has learned exactly which dishes you can prep, assemble, or
cook ahead of time. Whether you’re hosting a party or simply making dinner on a hectic
weeknight, Ina gives you lots of amazing recipes that taste just as good—or even better!—when they’re made in advance. In Make It Ahead, each recipe includes clear
instructions for what you can do ahead of time, and how far in advance, so you can
cook with confidence and eliminate last-minute surprises. Make a pitcher of Summer
Rosé Sangria filled with red berries, let it chill overnight for the flavors to develop, and
you have a delicious drink to offer your friends the minute they arrive. Simmer a pot of
Wild Mushroom & Farro Soup, enjoy a bowl for lunch, and freeze the rest for a chilly
evening. You can prep the kale, Brussels sprouts, and lemon vinaigrette for Winter Slaw
ahead of time and simply toss them together before serving. Assemble French Chicken
Pot Pies filled with artichokes and fresh tarragon a day in advance and then pop them
in the oven half an hour before dinner. And for dessert, everyone needs the recipe for
Ina’s Decadent (gluten-free!) Chocolate Cake topped with Make-Ahead Whipped Cream.
Ina also includes recipes for the biggest cooking day of the year—Thanksgiving! Her
Ultimate Make-Ahead Roast Turkey and Gravy with Onions & Sage may just change
your life. With beautiful photographs and hundreds of invaluable make-ahead tips, this
is your new go-to guide for preparing meals that are stress-free yet filled with those
fabulously satisfying flavors that you have come to expect from the Barefoot Contessa.

The Music of Rock Legend Elton John
Takes Center Stage in Love Lies Bleeding
Harlem
Globetrotters
continued from p. 1
Love Lies Bleeding is a spectacular dance triumph that is a sensationally
entertaining. The production takes audiences on a wild ride, an emotional
rollercoaster of theatrically dynamic tableaux. The non-stop parade of
over 150 dazzling costumes by Martine Bertrand provides a glorious riot
of color and invention. Audience members can expect to see stylized sequined Dodger uniforms, glittery Egyptian loincloths and a roller-skating
“Rocket Man” outfit complete with flashing lights and fireworks.
The world famous Harlem Globetrotters return to Houston January
23-25, 2015, at NRG Arena. The
Harlem Globetrotters have been
thrilling families and millions of
fans for 89 years, all the while innovating the game in exciting new
ways.
The show is not a typical story ballet. “It’s more a dance spectacular
than a ballet,” Mr. Grand-Maître says. “Some of it [the movement] is Bob
Fosse-inspired; there’s cabaret, contemporary, athletic movement. We
weaved in Rollerblading and flying like Cirque du Soleil. The whole spectrum is there. It’s quite a hybrid,” he adds. “It’s like a Broadway-slashVegas show with ballet.”
Tickets start at just $20 and are
available at all Ticketmaster Outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000,
at www.ticketmaster.com and at
the NRG Stadium South Ticket
Windows during normal business
hours. Children who are 2 years of
age and older must have a ticket to
enter the Arena. For additional information, visit www.nrgpark.com.
Although rooted in the life and career of the British pop icon, Love Lies
Bleeding is more than a simple biographical narrative; it’s also a probing
examination of the cult of celebrity and the triumphs and challenges of
superstardom. The main character is an obsessive Elton John fan and
the ballet itself is a fantasy in which he experiences the highs and lows
of his idol’s roller-coaster career. Set in a vast, dark theatre littered with
mementos, artifacts, and remembrances of past glories, the ballet poetically depicts the dramatic landscapes of a classic series of Elton John/
Bernie Taupin songs which have deeply inspired billions of music lovers
around the world.
“I am proud of what Alberta Ballet has created,” comments Sir Elton John.
“It’s a strong, contemporary choreography that entertains and challenges
new audiences with its new esthetics and its powerful fusion of art mediums.”
Alberta Ballet, led by Artistic Director Jean Grand-Maître, is Canada’s
third largest dance company. Founded in 1966, Alberta Ballet has developed a distinctive repertoire and performance quality that has brought it
to the forefront of both its home and international stages. The company
comprises 31 classically-trained professional dancers.

Inprint Reading Series
Presents Karen Russell
Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series presents Karen Russell,
Monday, January 26, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. (doors open 6:45 p.m.), at Cullen
Theater, Wortham Center, 501 Texas Avenue.
General admission tickets are $5.
Karen Russell “is arguably our greatest fantasist writing serious fiction
today,” declares NPR, and People magazine writes, “Karen Russell is
a storyteller with a voice like no other.” Her debut story collection St.
Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves, published when she was in her
twenties, was called “original and astonishing, joyful and unsettling” in
a starred Booklist review. Her novel Swamplandia! was a finalist for the
2012 Pulitzer Prize and selected by The New York Times as one of the
10 Best Books of 2011. Her other works include Vampires in the Lemon
Grove and Other Stories and the e-book Sleep Donation: A Novella. Time
Out Chicago calls Vampires “dazzlingly strange .... vacillating between
horror and humor, Russell’s writing recalls both George Saunders and
vintage Stephen King, sometimes simultaneously.” Michiko Kakutani
in The New York Times writes, “[Russell] has fashioned a quirky, textured voice that is thoroughly her own: lyrical and funny, fantastical and
meditative.” Russell was the youngest of the 2013 MacArthur Foundation
“genius” fellowship recipients, and she has been included in The New
Yorker’s 20 Under 40, the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35, and
among Granta’s Best Young American Novelists.
The Reading will be followed by an on-stage interview, book sale and
signing. The event will be held at the Wortham Center. For additional
information, visit the web at www.inprinthouston.org/karen-russell or call

Comfort and the
Eighteenth-Century
Interior at Rienzi
Rienzi presents Comfort and the
Eighteenth-Century now through
February 1, 2015.
The 18th century marked the birth
of comfort as an everyday concept,
evidenced by innovations in everything from furniture trends to sartorial styles. Objects from the period
were increasingly designed to improve people’s physical or emotional wellbeing simply by making
life more comfortable. Rienzi’s fall
exhibition, Comfort and the Eighteenth-Century Interior, draws from
the Museum’s permanent collections to showcase porcelain, silver,
furniture, textiles and works on paper that demonstrate the idea as
it was developed through art and
material culture.
This exhibition is organized by
Christine Gervais, Associate Curator of Decorative Arts and Rienzi,
and Misty Flores, Curatorial Assistant. Accompanying the exhibition is Rienzi’s 15th Anniversary
Symposium, Creatures of Comfort:
1650-1950.
Rienzi, the MFAH house museum
for European decorative arts and
paintings, is situated on four acres
of wooded gardens in the historic
River Oaks neighborhood, about
five miles from the main MFAH
campus and about two miles from
Bayou Bend, the MFAH house museum for American decorative arts
and paintings.

Samurai: The Way of the Warrior
at Houston Museum of Natural Science
Houston Museum of Natural Science reveals samurai brigandine, a sort
of light armored vest that samurai wore under their suit of armor for extra
protection in battle, as one of 80 exquisite objects on display in Samurai:
The Way of the Warrior at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
The special object is a unique piece and must have been made for a
high-ranking member of the warrior class due to the use of extremely
expensive silks and dyes and the innovative tailoring methods employed
when compared to the standards in use at that time in Japan. In fact,
during the restoration, sewing techniques were discovered that were very
different from those commonly used in similar garments during this time
period; techniques that turned out to be very close to those used at the
time in the Western world.
The battle gear of the samurai was an important signifier of leadership,
authority and social position, even when worn in peacetime. The samurai
may be gone; but why does the fascination with this elite echelon of society live on? David Temple briefly explains the fascination and the history
behind this specific suit of armor, such as the alleged place where it was
made, the name of its owner, the weaponry associated with it, and, finally,
when and where it was used during this unique opportunity to photograph
the Brigandine.
The Houston Museum of Natural Science—one of the nation’s most
heavily attended museums—is a centerpiece of the Houston Museum
District. With four floors of permanent exhibit halls, and the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center, Burke Baker Planetarium,
and George Observatory, and as host to world-class and ever-changing touring exhibitions, the Museum has something to delight every age
group. With such diverse and extraordinary offerings, a trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive in
the heart of the Museum District, is always an adventure.
Also at the Museum... Shark! Get to know sharks in an interactive, informative live touch tank experience. See what it’s like to get up close and
personal with sharks at the live shark touch tank, track great white sharks
swimming in the Gulf of Mexico in real time, and see what’s happening with sharks all over the world through amazing conservation efforts
led by top marine biologists. Sharks are not always given the credit they
deserve, but that will all change when you experience Shark!, on exhibit
through March 22, 2015.
“Sharks are misunderstood. The hype in the classic horror film Jaws and
misinformation in other movies and documentaries have had a huge impact on the perception of this very important group and their role in our
oceans and relationship with people,” said Wes Tunnell, curator of marine
biology at HMNS. “This fictional representation has caused most people
to fear the oceans and not want to enter into the shark’s environment. It is
true that there are shark attacks on people in small numbers each year;
however, the real threat is now in the opposite direction.”
Sharks are in a state of crisis all over the world as a result of man’s activities. The over-exploitation of shark resources, along with human-induced
damage to the marine ecosystem globally, has grave implications for
shark populations everywhere. Shark!, a special exhibition, educates visitors about the important role of sharks in the world’s oceans, with special
reference to sharks in the Gulf of Mexico.
At the beginning of the exhibition, visitors feel as if they are in a shark cage
that is in the ocean. Shark cages have evolved from being equipment
originally built many years ago to protect divers while working in “shark
infested” waters, to protective cages for movie and documentary filming,
as well as research, and most recently, in ecotourism diving to see sharks
in their natural environment. There is some controversy about their use
today, since guides within the ecotourism industry usually “chum” the waters around their boats and shark cages to attract sharks. Chumming is
the practice of throwing shark food, usually fish or fish parts, in the water
to bait or attract sharks. Learn more about this practice and experience a
great photo-opportunity that most people will never have in nature.
Experience two shark touch tanks – low aquariums made specifically to
give museum goers the opportunity to see small sharks up close. The
tanks are 9 feet in diameter and contain 700 gallons of seawater each,
with two kinds of sharks in them.
Shark! is organized by the Houston Museum of Natural Science with the
Texas State Aquarium and assistance from OCEARCH and the Harte
Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi. For additional information, call 713-639-4629.

This exhibition is the first of its kind to explore Galveston’s legacy as a port of entry on a national scale. It brings to light the little-known, yet rich, era of Galveston’s history and importance to the growth of Texas and the American Midwest. While Ellis Island’s location in New
York made it a natural port for Europeans, Galveston attracted a diverse group of people
from Europe, Mexico, South and Central America, and even Asia. The exhibition highlights
enduring themes in the history of immigration including the dangers of the journey, making
a life in a new land, navigating bureaucracy, and confronting discrimination. Forgotten Gateway: Coming to America Through Galveston Island is a traveling exhibition by the Bullock
Texas State History Museum presented in partnership with Humanities Texas. The Museum
Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free. Visit the website
at www.heritagesociety.org. The museum gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours of the historic structures are available at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m.
& 2:30 p.m. An admission charge applies. For more information please call 713-655-1912.
The Heritage Society parking lot is open for Heritage Society visitors 8:30 a.m.−5 p.m., Monday−Saturday. The Heritage Society is located at 1100 Bagby Street.
From Dowland to Britten:
Nicholas Phan, tenor; Eliot Fisk, guitar
Two world-renowned artists and Da Camera favorites team up for an intimate program of
English music, January 27, 2015, 7:30 p.m., The Menil Collection. When not composing
his large operas, Benjamin Britten was an avid explorer of traditional folk songs, arranged
primarily for his life partner, tenor Peter Pears. Here, Britten is set in the context of his
earlier musical compatriots. His deep ties to the exquisitely moving works of Elizabethan
composer John Dowland shed light on his own musical path. The theme of love weaves a
thread through the centuries.
The performance will be held at 1533 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit

Born in 1959, Bruce Munro completed a B.A. in Fine Arts at Bristol Polytechnic, England. Shortly
thereafter he moved to Sydney,
where he learned about design
and lighting, inspired by Australia’s natural light and landscape.
Returning to Southwest England in
1992, he settled in Wiltshire.

AD SPACE AVAILABLE
Field of Light at
Discovery Green
Munro originally conceived the idea
for Field of Light in 1992 during a
trip through the red desert of central Australia, when he sketched
a landscape of illuminated stems
that would wait like dormant seeds
in a dry desert, to bloom at night.
The idea remained in his sketchbook until 2004, when he finally
had space and resources to execute it. It has since been specifically re-imagined for sites across
the globe. The Discovery Green
Field of Light comprises 4,500 radiant, frosted glass spheres atop
slender stems connected by illuminated fiber optic. The spheres and
stems wait quietly until dusk and
then bloom with gentle rhythms of
colored light as darkness falls over
the park.

HIM Food Pantry in
the Heights
Society for the Performing Arts
January Calendar of Events
The HIM food pantry is an interfaith
coalition of churches and many
neighborhood volunteers have
volunteered 8,300 hours to serve
more than 6,000 families, which
equates to meals for approximately
24,000 individuals. The pantry has
become a community effort, with
gardeners from St. Mark’s United
Methodist Church providing fresh
fruits and vegetables, local Boy
Scout and Girl Scout troops volunteering their time, the children of
Travis Elementary collecting and
delivering more than 1,800 cans of
food, weekly bread and other food
donations from local Kroger and
Fiesta stores and generous donations by the Fraternal Order of Police, local churches and neighbors.
Diavolo – Architecture in Motion, 8 p.m., Friday, January 9, 2015,
Jones Hall, Tickets: $25-$75: Diavolo’s dancers, gymnasts, athletes
and actors brilliantly explore the space where reality ends and imagination
begins. Under Artistic Director Jacques Heim, who has choreographed
works for Cirque du Soleil, the company reinvents dance, re-imagines
theatre and redefines thrills. With outrageous and surrealistic sets playing
an intrinsic role in each work, Diavolo takes movement, athletics and daring to the extreme to create abstract narratives of the human condition.
For its return to Houston, the company will perform the final work of a trilogy created specifically for the Hollywood Bowl, titled Fluid Infinities, as
part of its program. Choreographed to Philip Glass’ Symphony No. 3, this
work is set on an abstract dome structure on which performers explore
metaphors of infinite space, continuous movement and humanity’s voyage into the unknown future. The dome’s organic pattern – which evokes
the craters of the moon, a honeycomb of bees, a shifting brain or an undiscovered starship – transports Diavolo’s performers and audiences into
a space that is otherworldly.
The pantry is open on Thursdays
from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. and Saturdays
from 10 a.m.-noon. Supporting
member churches are Christ the
King Catholic Church, St. Mark’s
United Methodist Church, the Vineyard Church and Zion Lutheran
Church. For more information or to

music into pop culture. Formerly known as Hahn-Bin, the virtuosic and
stylish performer changed his American name to Amadéus Leopold as
homage to two of his musical heroes: Wolfgang Amadéus Mozart and
renowned violinist Leopold Auer. Joining Amadéus Leopold on stage for

Fangs, Feathers and Fins:
Sacred Creatures in Ancient American Art
Stages Presents
Character Man
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presents Fangs, Feathers and Fins:
Sacred Creatures in Ancient American Art, now through January 25,
2015. Throughout history, humanity has been fascinated with the creatures that populate the world. In the ancient Americas, wildlife such as
jaguars, harpy eagles, and killer whales became symbols of divinity and
rulership and played significant roles in religion and society. The inventive ways in which animals were depicted in art provide a window into the
beliefs and practices of long gone cultures that never developed written
language and left few traces other than their art.
Stages Reperatory Theatre presents Character Man, by Jim Brochu, January 24 - February 15
2015.
Drawing from the Museum’s significant Pre-Columbian collection, and
spanning nearly 5,000 years, the exhibition Fangs, Feathers, and Fins:
Sacred Creatures in Ancient American Art is the first time that these remarkable artworks-dating from 3300 BC to 1550 AD-will be brought together thematically at the Museum. More than 200 artworks in the exhibition demonstrate how the peoples of the ancient Americas viewed
themselves and the world around them. A 1,000-year-old feather tunic
from the Nasca people of Peru, intricate gold ornaments from the Tairona
culture of Colombia, and evocative ceramic vessels and stone monuments made by the Maya and Olmec of ancient Mexico will be revelationsm to many.
The Museum is located at 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-6397300 or visit the website at www.mfah.org.

The Holocaust Museum Houston presents Birthrights Left Behind, now
through June 14, 2015. Determined to create a permanent impression
with her audiences, Washington, DC-area printmaker Pauline Jakobsberg uses her powerful prints -- full of tenderness, caring and humanity
balanced with pathos and grief -- both as a legacy to her relatives’ experiences during the Holocaust and to remind all that the human impulse to
remember our past cannot be fulfilled by giving universality to the individual history of specific people.
Inspired by memory drawings, journal sketches, artifacts and family tales
told by the Holocaust survivors of her husband’s family, Jakobsberg has
created art that leaves sweet, yet haunting memories, making her visions
a reality. By incorporating images from photographs and other documents
into her etched prints, she develops a story, reminding us of our inability
to grasp our past completely.
In Birthrights Left Behind, Jakobsberg poses the question: “Is it possible
to shape the future through memories of the past?” “Birthrights” is a selection of Jakobsberg’s work consisting of 20 original hand-pulled prints
using various printmaking techniques, ranging from engraving, etching,
silkscreen and collagraph.

Ice Age at Moody Gardens
Moody Gardens presents Ice Age from now through May 10, 2015. Ice
Age is an exciting and educational exhibition that invites you to travel
back in time to discover a frigid world, covered in ice and occupied by
mammoths, saber-toothed cats, bears, gigantic birds, cave people and
more.
Ice Age features life-sized animatronic animals, real fossils, some of
which can be touched by our guests, and cast skeletons set within elaborate Ice Age scenery.
The exhibition begins 2.5 million years ago when the Earth witnessed a
major environmental disruption, one that lead to dramatic evolutionary
changes to Earth’s life forms and forever shaped human history. Guests
then travel through galleries exploring the Megafauna, or giant Ice Age
animals; the Ice People, including Neanderthals and Cro Magnons; the
Tar Pits, the death traps of the Ice Age creatures; and the Megafaunal
Extinction, exploring the theories for why many animals of the Ice Age
became extinct.
This exhibition provides a unique and exciting walk through the Ice Age
epoch for families and visitors of all ages, closing with poignant discussion topics about Earth’s fragile climates and possible return of the Ice.
The Ice Return Gallery explores the prediction for another glacial period
in the current Ice Age, how global warming might tip the balance of nature
in a swifter, more dangerous direction, and what people can do to help
the planet.
“This new exhibit will take guests on an exciting journey through prehistoric times to encounter lifelike mammoths, saber-toothed cats, bears and
other creatures,” said John Zendt, president and CEO of Moody Gardens.
“The animatronics and information engage us and allow us to have fun
as we learn more about the latest scientific discoveries from the Ice Age.”
Ice Age was created by Imagine Exhibitions and Aurea Productions and
is curated and advised by world-renowned vertebrate paleontologist Dr.
Gregory M. Erickson. Professor Erickson is a leading expert on the biology of extinct organisms, mammals and dinosaurs in particular. He has
published nearly 100 professional papers, and participated in over 25 paleontological expeditions around the world.
Come experience firsthand the Ice Age animals of past and present, meet
the early humans that lived among them, and learn about the scientific
theories regarding the future of our planet. Ice Age is open daily to the
public. Admission is $14.95 for adults, $11.95 for seniors and $8.95 for
children. For more information and to buy tickets online, please visit www.

Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea
at Children’s Museum of Houston
The growing popularity of all things Korean, from fashion and film to music and cuisine, has swept up the Children’s Museum of Houston. From
now to May 10, 2015, the Children’s Museum of Houston will ride “Hallyu”
(the Korean Wave) with the debut of a brand new exhibit that digs right
into the heart and soul of the culture. Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in
Korea aims to bring modern-day South Korea to Houston.

Korean Pop (K-Pop) mainstream growing popularity, as well as Korean
soap operas across Japan, Southeast Asia and the globe, represent
only a minute reflection of the bustling, fast-paced, overwhelming, hip
and trendy, mindboggling, multisensory experience that is like living and
growing up in South Korea. In Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea,
five modern-day Korean kids will open their hearts and invite you to take
an intimate look into their lives through their diverse interests, customs
and ambitions, including their love of K-Pop and Korean cuisine, their
habit of texting to communicate and even their dreams of being accepted
into a good college; their drive is what keeps them studying after school
at “hagwon” (or cram school) until midnight! You’re invited to connect to
the world’s “most wired country,” where there’s plenty of Wi-Fi and almost
everyone owns a Samsung cell phone!
South Korea is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and an
important trade and political partner for the United States and other nations. It is enjoying broader influence, and receiving greater recognition
for its contributions in the realms of arts, culture, and technology. Heart
and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea will immerse you in learning experiences
which build your understanding of Korean culture to see the differences
and similarities between your life and the lives of Korean people.

Help Us, Help You
Prevent Bullying
HPD is asking for your help in fighting bullying among kids.
HPD Senior Police Officer Joe Sanchez says there are three types of
bullying that parents should know
about: physical, emotional and cyberbullying.
Physical bullying involves someone physically assaulting a victim, whereas emotional bullying
involves an individual speaking
badly about someone, either by
hurting feelings or tarnishing one’s
reputation. Cyberbullying occurs
when a bully uses the internet or
social media to engage in emotional bullying.
Some of the signs a child is being
bullied include:
• The child doesn’t want go to
school. He or she may pretend to
be sick, offer excuses such as not
having done the homework, etc.
• The child comes home unusually hungry because a bully took
his/her lunch, money or the child
is scared to eat where the bully is
present.
• The child is depressed. The results of bullying can be serious. It
can cause children to isolate themselves, become depressed, and
give them a diminished sense of
self-worth.
Parents who suspect their child is
being bullied should not confront
the suspected bully or the bully’s
parents. Instead, parents are encouraged to speak to a school
teacher or counselor about their
concerns.

Fabergé: From A Snowflake To An Iceberg
at Houston Museum of Natural Science
John Atlas: A
Survey of Work
Fabergé: From A Snowflake To An Iceberg is on exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. With the addition of over 150 new pieces, this
exhibition showcases 500 jeweled treasures from the world-renowned
McFerrin Collection. The exhibition presents a historical overview of the
works of the House of Fabergé, as well as the remarkable Russian history relating to the objects on display. Dozens of personal treasures of the
Romanov Family including Imperial pieces owned by Nicholas II, Alexander III and their family are featured.
The Art Car Museum, Houston
presents the exhibition, John Atlas: A Survey of Work 1969-2014,
on exhbiti now through February
2015.
Inspired by the ancient Scythian treasures unearthed during archaeological digs in Kerch on the north coast of the Black Sea, Peter Carl Fabergé
(1846-1920) first won acclaim for his historical pieces during the PanRussian Industrial exhibition of 1882. New to the collection is a lion’s
head charm created by one of Fabergé’s first workmasters Erik Kollin.
Fabergé went on to create original, exquisite objects of luxury for the elite,
as well as impeccably designed everyday objects. You can see hundreds
of these items— predominantly made for and use by the royalty—in the
McFerrin Collection.
From elegantly simple to breathtakingly ornate, the jewelry, clocks, picture frames, snuff boxes, cigarette cases, desk accessories, flower studies and carved hardstone animals in this collection were thoughtfully selected to exemplify extraordinary materials and workmanship. New to the
exhibition is a hand-held fan belonging to Queen Victoria.
Today, the House of Fabergé is best known for crafting Easter eggs in the
late 19th to early 20th centuries. Visitors to the exhibition will be happy to
see these stunning pieces are still on exhibition, some complete with their
“surprise”—including the stunning Imperial Diamond Trellis Egg, Kelch
Egg and Nobel Ice Egg.
At its height, the House of Fabergé employed more than 500 craftsmen
and designers in their Moscow and St. Petersburg workshops and sales
branches in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kiev, Odessa and London.
Fabergé: From a Snowflake to an Iceberg is organized by the Houston
Museum of Natural Science with the McFerrin Collection.
The museum is located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive. For Information/
Tickets, call 713-639-4629 or visit the website at www.hmns.org.

John Atlas has been making art in
Houston, both painting and sculpture, for over four decades. This exhibition is the most comprehensive
show of his art assembled thus far
and spans his entire career from
his first serious work completed in
1969, to several large canvases
completed in the weeks leading up
to the installation of this show.
The exhibition consists of over
eighty paintings on canvas and
paper, and a number of sculptures
including wooden constructions
made as studies for objects that
appear in the paintings. Atlas’ mastery of color and composition, and
his ability to move from hallucinatory figuration to more surrealistic
and non-objective work is evident
throughout the exhibition.
John Atlas was born in 1952 in
Boston Mass. and moved to Houston with his family at age three.
His father, a doctor, worked in biomedical research for the National
Institute of Health in Boston, and
worked at the local V.A. hospital
upon arrival in Houston. He later
set up his private practice in Pasadena Tx. and commuted there from
Houston. Largely a self taught artist, Atlas dropped out of school at
age sixteen to pursue painting and
drawing full time. Over the years
his work has been shown here in
Houston at Sally Sprout Gallery,
Graham Gallery, Max Hutchinson
Gallery, as well as The Museum
of Fine Arts, Blaffer Gallery at the
University of Houston, and Sewall
Art Gallery, Rice University. He has
shown internationally in the exhibitions New Art from a New City:
Houston in Salsburger Kunstverein, Austria and Art from Houston
in Norway: 1982 Stavanger, Norway.
The Art Car Museum is located
at 140 Heights Blvd. and is open
Wednesday-Sunday,
11
a.m.
to 6 p.m. Admission is always
free. Please call to schedule tour
groups. For additional information,

Hi everyone, I’m
Bones!!
“Bones” seemed an appropriate name for me when my foster mom found me in the road,
but I will looked forward to a
“Bones Magee” or “Mr. Bones”
even. See, I was abandoned to
fend for myself out in the country earlier this summer, and had
just about given up hope, until
a nice lady and her daughter
spotted me and turned out to
be my angels. They took me
in, cleaned me up, pulled splinters and mesquite thorns from
my sun burnt skin and fed me
lots and lots of delicious food!
These days I am looking pretty
darn handsome (toot toot), I am
happier than I have ever been in
my whole life, and I have put on
15 pounds (thus needing a new
name with a ring to it!). I play
well with my foster dog brother and sisters, big and small. I
love toys and treats, and even
though I have never had much
of my own until now, I am happy
to share and know there is more
where they came from. I’d be
great for older kids, but my energy level may be too much for
small children. I admit it, I get
the zoomies! I’m very smart and
eager to learn and please for
anyone that has time to spend
with me. Please contact right
away at [email protected] and/or go directly to the website to complete
an adoption application at:
www.rescuedpetsmovement.org.
Meet ZEKE
www.txlabrescue.org
Zeke was picked up by a caring driver on Hwy 290 several
weeks ago after he saw Zeke
literally dodging cars speeding down the freeway. Covered
with ticks and fleas, numerous
skin lesions and thin as a rail,
Zeke stood quietly in the back
yard while he took in his new
surroundings. He is bug free
now, his coat is improving and
he has put on a little weight. For
a dog, Zeke is incredibily quiet.
He seldom whines or barks, but
he can be a bit dominant, particularly around food. Lying on
the floor in the bedroom, living
room, or kitchen is his specialty. And in some ways he is
very catlike in that he often approaches side ways and then
rubs his flank slowly against
your leg. We think he is around
two or so in age and appears
to be in good health. He is neutered, has all his shots, and
chipped. He just needs a good
home to love him for the special
dog that he is. If you are interested in Zeke, apply to adopt
today at www.txlabrescue.org.

Meet HOWIE
www.txlabrescue.org
Howie is a silly 4-5 year old boy.
He rides well in the car, is crate
trained and potty trained. He enjoys lounging on the pool steps
at his foster home and is a great
foster brother to his Lab sister.
He loves to go for walks, and is
a lizard hunter extraordinare! If
you are interested in adopting
Howie, apply to adopt online at

Arizona: Sedona’s Trails -- Bring Your Pets!
The hiking trails in Sedona, Arizona are
some of the best anyone could hope to
find in the American Southwest. From
paths winding through the famous Red
Rock formations to more moderate trailheads along water, there’s a hike for everyone. With a wide variety of difficulty
and distance, beginners and expert hikers
will all find something new and wonderful.
And these hikes aren’t limited to humans!
All of the trails in Sedona are dog friendly,
making it the perfect place for travellers
who bring their best friends along for
adventures. However, there are a few
things that hikers of all skill levels should
keep in mind if they plan on bringing
along a four-legged companion. Hiking
is more strenuous than walking for dogs
as well as humans, so here are some tips
for making sure everyone stays safe and
happy on the hike!
First things first, if the owner is a beginner hiker, then it’s likely that their
dog is too. Make sure that the selected trail is appropriate in regards to
difficulty level. Hiking often includes inclines, uneven ground, and usually
longer distance than walking, so keep in mind that an eight mile hike might
be a little too much for a pup who’s more accustomed to an easy stroll
around the block! It’s also a good idea to hike during the morning or the
later afternoon when there are fewer people on the trail, especially if a pet
is not used to hiking during busier times!
A trip to Sedona in January or February makes hiking with your pet much
“cooler.” Sedona, during the spring,
summer, or fall months means slightly
warmer weather, and it’s important to
keep in mind the difference in how dogs
keep themselves cool. They can’t sweat
out their excess body heat that comes
from the exertion of hiking like people
can. This means that dogs require twice
as much resting time on the trail. This
gives them a chance to cool down and
pant out the heat before taking on the
next leg of the hike, which will lower the chances of them getting too warm
and possible suffering from heatstroke. Another important tip to keep in mind
is to keep them well watered. Dogs sometimes won’t drink all of the water
they require to stay hydrated, so be patient and make sure that a dog bowl
has made it into the hiking pack. This will make it easier for them to drink what
they need as you make your way along the trail. It cannot be stressed enough
how important it is to make sure your dog is rested and watered throughout
the hiking excursion!
If a traveller is invested in going on an all day hike even though they’ve brought
their dog to Sedona, this does not mean that plans need to completely change!
Sedona is a very pet friendly area, and as the leading pet friendly hotel, we
have gathered a list of wonderful local day cares that our customers can make use of on their trip. There are pet watchers
who will come to the hotel and off site centers that can make
sure any pet is well looked after while their owner is off enjoying a day on the trails!
One of the best times of the year to enjoy all the outdoor trails
that Sedona has to offer is in January/February. With mild temperatures, Sedona is the perfect location for spending time outside without the worry of snow or sleet like in other parts of the
country. However, this means that rooms can get booked up
quickly! If you’re thinking about making a getaway and bringing your pet, then think about making a reservation now with
El Portal Sedona Hotel. The pet friendly hotel has no pet fees
and provides a welcome basket for their four legged guests.
This boutique hotel is staffed by people who know the area and are valuable resources, offering guests personalized concierge services for the Sedona area for planning days full of activity. Its central location makes it the
perfect place to rest between adventures out on the trail!
About El Portal Sedona Hotel: El Portal Sedona Hotel is a pet friendly Sedona hotel where guests can enjoy
Sedona and area in historic yet luxurious surroundings with their “best friend.” Each guest suite includes a private entrance, patio, fireplace, whirlpool bath and WiFi; featherweight cashmere blankets, luxury Egyptian cotton sheets, bath towels, premium down pillows and comforters for the ultimate in restful comfort. At this luxury
inn guests have access to unique concierge services for Sedona and area. El Portal offers pet friendly Sedona

In Her Own Words: To my friends and family,
This morning my good friend said to me… Happy “Weird” Anniversary!
So true! It was one year ago today that I went in to Methodist Hospital
for my Bi-lateral mastectomy. Is this an anniversary? Is this a day to be
happy? June 25th was my year “anniversary” from diagnosis. Was that
to be celebrated? I don’t know how I feel about these anniversary dates
but it seems to me that in order to figure out a way to be happy with my
“new normal” I have to look back at what I have overcome. This is why I
am sharing my story with you.

This is my second year to do the Komen Cure walk; a charity that raises
money and awareness for the fight against Breast Cancer. Ironically,
today is the year long anniversary that my girlfriend, Cristl Craig, had
surgery to remove her cancer. Even more ironic, the day I sign up for
the walk and try to raise money for this wonderful cause, she sends out
a fabulous email. Instead of me even trying to write what kind of year
she has had and the courage she has shown, I thought I would forward a
note she sent to her family and friends earlier today that describes what
a year it has been.

To mark the 40th anniversary of
man’s landing on the moon, the
MFAH presents The Moon: “Houston, Tranquility Base Here. The Eagle has Landed,” an exhibition that
chronicles man’s enduring fascination over five centuries with our
nearest planetary neighbor. Ranging from moonlit landscapes by the
Old Masters and the Impressionists, to Ansel Adams’ iconic Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico
(1941) and shots famously taken
on the moon by the members of
Apollo 11, the exhibition provides
a dazzling overview of five centuries of moon-gazing. In addition,
early scientific instruments, books,
moon globes, maps, Galileo Galilei’s 1610 treatise on the moon,
and objects from NASA will be on
view. The Moon is on exhibit now
through January 10, 2010 in the
Audrey Jones Beck Building.

Galveston Historic Homes Tour
Galveston Historical Foundation will present the 37th annual Galveston
Historic Homes Tour Saturdays, May 7 and 14, and Sundays, May 8
and 15, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This year’s Coastal Style tour includes 9
houses featuring a variety of styles from an 1871 Gulf Coast Cottage to a
traditional Craftsman Bungalow built in 1924. As visitors tour the homes
they will hear about Galveston’s unique and eclectic architecture styles
and the influential and everyday citizens that built the houses that still
stand today.
Advance tickets for the tour are $20 each and $25 per person during
tour weekends. Numerous separately ticketed special events are also
being held in conjunction with the Galveston Historic Homes Tour including the First Impression Preview Sunset Tour, Moonlight and Martinis at
the Garten Verein Pavilion, the 7th annual Linen and Lace Mother’s Day
Brunch, Basement to Attic Behind the Scenes Tours of Bishop’s Palace,
Bike through History, Sally Wallace Preservation Awards and the Antique
Treasures Preview Party and Sale. Tickets for the 2011 Historic Homes
Tour are available online at www.galvestonhistory.org.

Edible Delights in the Heights
Kraftsmen Cafe & Kraftsmen Baking
Houston Ballet’s
Center for Dance
by Diane Mosier, longtime Heights resident & food lover
After telling Owner/Chef/Baker Scott Tycer that there’s nothing quite
like the smell and taste of hot just-from-the-oven bread with some real
butter or dipping sauce, he explained that it was an early socialization
experience stemming from a time when there might only be one kiln or
fire bricked oven for an entire village and folks would prepare their own
breads by hand and take them to the “baker” to cook them.
Houston Ballet’s sleek new Center
for Dance will hold a grand opening ceremony on Saturday, April 9
at noon with a ribbon cutting ceremony presided over by Houston
Mayor Annise Parker at 601 Preston Street in the heart of downtown
Houston’s Theater District. The
new, six-story, 115,000 square-foot
facility, designed with sustainable
features by globally-recognized architecture firm Gensler, will come
in around $46.6 million (an estimated $6.4 million under its original
projected budget of $53 million),
opening ahead of schedule. The
building will boast nine dance studios, a dance lab that seats 200 for
presentations as well as rehearsals, and artistic, administrative and
support facilities for Houston Ballet
and its academy. Houstonians are
continued on p. 5
Well, in the Heights Village, I am very happy to report that Kraftsmen
Baking is an artisan baker with a great oven and now a terrific cafe.

The bakery and cafe are located in the in the old Textile Mill on W. 22nd
Street, about a half block west of Shepherd @ 22nd. You should drop
by just to see another outstanding renovation by Jonathan Grenader. Its
second life is perfect for a busy artisan bakery and cafe, striking the right
blend of functional yet upscale warehouse/loft type space.
Both Scott and his wife went to college on the West Coast, she earning
her MBA and Scott deciding on the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary
Arts Portland after receiving his Bachelor’s Degree. All the while, Scott
worked in every type of restaurant job available, paying the bills and
