Art Encounters


Looking for a new art experience? Drop-in Art Encounters programs, led by artists and inspired by art at the MFAH, offer you the opportunity to experiment with processes and materials, and to create community in new and different ways. Each event highlights the work of a different artist or exhibition. Admission is free.

You can spend as much or as little time as you like engaging with these encounters. Actively participate, or simply follow along. The way you take part is up to you! See the archive of Virtual Art Encounters.


Learning and Interpretation programs receive generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services; Samuel H. Kress Foundation; The Brown Foundation, Inc.; Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo; Houston Junior Woman's Club; Sharon G. Dies; Sterling-Turner Foundation; Susan Vaughan Foundation; and additional generous donors.
