Here’s a novel way to spend the Fourth of July holiday: by listening to every word of the Declaration of Independence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston house museum, Bayou Bend. The museum’s collection, housed in the former River Oaks home of notable Houstonian Ima Hogg, includes American decorative arts (silver, furnishings and ceramics) and paintings, and is the perfect setting to celebrate the country’s birthday. For the 11th year, Bayou Bend will be open (from noon to 5 p.m.), rain or shine, offering performances, crafts, activities, refreshments and two readings of the Declaration of Independence, each followed by a lemonade toast on the Diana Terrace.
