This Year's MasterMinds Are....(With Video)

Once again the Houston Press is trying to lend a hand and give a shout to deserving nonprofit groups and creative people in town with our MasterMind awards, which not only include high honor but, perhaps even more important, a $2,000 check.

Last year the winners were Opera Vista; Reginald Adams, founder of the Museum of Cultural Arts, Houston; and the SoReal Cru.

This year the winners are:

Foodways Texas, a new organization dedicated to preserving the food history of Texas.

Catastrophic Theatre, founded by its artistic director Jason Nodler. In 2010, Catastrophic Theatre premiered -- to considerable acclaim -- Bluefinger: The Fall and Rise of Herman Brood, a play about a Dutch rock star/artist/poet whose life ended in suicide in 2001.

Nameless Sound and its director David Dove. Nameless Sound is a nonprofit exploring new ways to teach music in public schools and out in the community.

Congratulations to all, and thanks to readers for nominating many other deserving groups. As always, it's a very tough decision to pick the top three.
