Check out the list below for starters.

Wednesday

The Tyler Museum of Art shows work from The Contemporary Austin’s collection. Head there to see the exhibition, “This & That.

In “A Bronx Tale,” a young man is torn between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be. See the hit Broadway musical at Dallas’ Winspear Opera House.

The Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth has black and white works by Francisco de Goya. Although known as one of the greatest painters of all times,  the Spanish artist also was a great draftsman and printmaker. Plan a visit to the museum and see more than seventy-five of Goya’s works on paper.
