Cool Summer Nights: Art
July 13, 2018 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Forget about standing outside in the heat of the summer! Come inside to the Bullock Museum for three FREE evenings celebrating culture, community and Texas history. You're invited to be a part of this brand new event series. With one program each month in June, July and August you're guaranteed some great nights out this summer!
Our second Cool Summer Nights highlights the amazing range of visual arts found in Texas in conjunction with the exhibition Comanche Motion: The Art of Eric Tippeconnic. Guests can watch artists create paintings inspired by the Museum's galleries before their eyes, or try out a variety of visual arts techniques for themselves.
Cool Summer Nights lets you discover Museum content in a social and comfortable atmosphere. Whether coming in work clothes straight from the office, enjoying the atmosphere before heading to dinner, or capping off a day spent exploring the city, Cool Summer Nights will give you the freedom to engage and explore the Museum at your own pace and on your own terms.
