Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Check out a slideshow from Artopia at Winter Street Studios.

If you weren't at Artopia on Saturday, you missed a lot of really cool stuff, not limited to the first-ever performance by a MasterMinds Award winner (in this case, Melissa Waddy-Thibodeaux of the Buffalo Soldiers Museum performing as Harriet Tubman) and an ephemeral mural by Houston's best street artists that is probably being painted over at this very moment.

But seriously, Artopia is always a fun, kick-ass event and this year was no exception. There's a reason it sells out. In addition to performances by local arts orgs, lots of cool stuff to look at on the walls, tasting menus from Houston-area restaurants and plenty of wine to keep the vibe going, it's also a chance for the Press to recognize the MasterMind winners, who represent growth and promise in the Houston art community.

So if you missed this year's event, or if you just want to relive the fun, check out the video recap below. And make a mental note to buy tickets for next year.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
