Great new article about Aurora in Arts+Culture Texas as we approach our 20th anniversary and Aurora20 celebration! Thanks Nancy Zastudil. And thanks to all who've been a part of this exciting endeavor! So far, so good. #Aurora20

    What remains to be seen: Houston's Aurora Picture Show at 20

Typically this phrase precedes a stunt, mishap, or otherwise social-media-meme-worthy epic fail. But in the picture perfect world of Aurora Picture Show, it translates into community support, successful collaboration, and artistic experimentation.

After City Council rejected that offer, the sculpture ended up here, near the corner of Yupon and Branard streets.

    Houston's Rothko Chapel vandalized with paint, handbills: 'It's okay to be white'
    The Rothko Chapel - an inclusive space for prayer, meditation and introspection located near the Menil Collection in Montrose - was the target of what executive director David Leslie describes as a "hate incident" early Friday morning.

Aurora Picture Show's first ever public scree...

Aurora Picture Show's first ever public screening in June of 1998 was Extremely Shorts–an open call program of all sorts of independent film and video work with the only stipulation being that they were 3 minutes or less. Bill Daniel's "History of Texas City" collage film was included in that first program 20 years ago. (And soon after, Bill began bringing radical West Coast film programs to Aurora.) Extremely Shorts is still going strong as Houston's funkiest film festival, including bite size moving image madness from around the globe. Don't miss this year's Extremely Shorts fest at Aurora this coming Friday and Saturday! #Aurora20
