You're invited!

Let me invite you on a bus trip to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. As part of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston's "A Passion for Glass" traveling exhibit (which is at the Tomball Library only til January 30, by the way) the museum is offering a free bus trip to the museum on Saturday, February 4. I'll be going as the library's host. It will leave the library parking lot at 9:30 a.m. and arrive at the museum about 10:30. Sarah Wheeler, coordinator of the museum's special events, will meet us there and give us a short tour to orient everyone to the museum. Then we're on our own.

Your admission to all the regular museum exhibits is free. You can tour any of the exhibits, take a sketchbook and draw your own art treasure, or purchase tickets to the special King Tut exhibit (either online or at the door) and see it. Lunch will be on each person--bring a picnic and eat it outside in the sculpture garden, or eat at the museum's cafeteria.

The bus to return us to Tomball will leave at 1:30 p.m. and return us to the library between 2:30 and 3:00 pm.

The only thing you have to do is reserve a seat. I will take reservations at the Tomball Art League on Saturday, January 14, or you can phone the library at 832-559-4213 or drop by the reference desk. The bus holds fifty-five and the tour is open to everyone, so get your seat reserved early!

Here's the museum's website so you can have a look at their exciting offerings.
