Houston is Home to a Thriving Multicultural Arts Scene
Did you know that nearly ninety languages are spoken in Houston?
It's one of the most diverse cities in the nation and boasts a thriving multicultural arts scene.
Destinations not to be missed include:
Czech Center Museum
At the Czech Center Museum, visitors can enjoy fascinating educational experiences that focus on the art, music, and lives of the Czechs, Europeans, and Slovaks who left their home countries in search of a new life. Admission is always free on the last Monday of every month, and the fun includes exhibits, language classes, and movie nights.
Talento Bilingue de Houston
Known as one of the city's foremost cultural arts organizations, Talento Bilingue strives to create Houston's Latino arts experience through collaboration, education, and preservation. Founded in 1977, it encompasses sixteen thousand square feet and features a 240-seat theater that hosts exceptional performances. Throughout the year, the venue also features an array of exhibits and educational programming that's fun for everyone.
Asia Society Texas Center
Designed by architect Yoshio Taniguchi, the Asia Society Texas Center spans nearly forty thousand square feet and cost $48.4 million to build. It was established in 1979 by former ambassador Roy Huffington and Barbara Bush as they realized the need to educate Americans about Asia. The center has called its current location home since 2011, and it's dedicated to offering quality programs in arts and culture. Visitors can also explore exhibits, and the one permanently on display is called Lee Ufan: Relatum-signal. Lee Ufan is a Korean artist who created Relatum-signal as his first commissioned piece in the United States, and he is described as a philosopher-artist who creates sculptures that both engage and tantalize.
