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

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.

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

    Catch the good times rolling on the rivers
    Just upstream from a wicked little roller coaster of a rapid in the South Llano River sits a deep, long, fish-filled pool that, over more than 20 years of never-regular-enough visits, has invariably shone as a highlight on a waterway that can gift anglers with an almost unbroken string of memorable moments.

    For hunters, South Texas colors a feast for the senses
    In the right light and aspect, dung beetles are strikingly colorful and, yes, beautiful creatures. At least the pair busy at their kind's Sisyphean task of shoving an impressive ball of their namesake up a sandy incline struck me as such.

    Revamped ShareLunker program a big success
    Most of the million-plus Texas anglers who primarily target largemouth bass, the nation's most popular sport fish, will brag that their state is home to the most abundant, diverse and high-quality bass fisheries in the country. Early results from the 2018 ShareLunker program give those anglers and the Texas fisheries managers who oversee those fisheries ammunition to support that claim.

    Texas red snapper season extended to 82 days, longest since 2007
