Art @ Discovery Green

Sure, the name says it all, but the curators for Art @ Discovery Green have assembled a nice showcase of about 70 fine and contemporary craft artists for the inaugural, dog-friendly event. We’re digging Christopher Alan Smith’s amazing history-infused hand-drawn maps; the seventh-gen Texan even has a new piece showing active oil and gas wells. Denver’s Carla Wright paints colorful oil-on-wood landscapes, while local fave Leticia Franko is bringing her big-eyed “Whimfansical” heroines (each with her own back story). “There’s incredible work. There are painters, of course,” says Susanne Theis, Discovery Green’s programming director. “There are also some incredible people that work with wood, that work with glass, and I think it’s really high quality. It also coincides with one of the great conventions at George R. Brown, the Quilt Festival.”

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. November 5 and 6. 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-400-7336 or visit discoverygreen.com. Free.
