People have been creating art to tell stories since the beginning of time - in fact it's one of the main reason why people make art, to communicate ideas that sometimes can't be expressed any other way. Both museums and libraries are repositories of stories.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston has created the special traveling exhibition, titled Once Upon a Time: Telling Stories Through Clay, to bring original art from the MFAH collection to eight Harris County Public Libraries, and it will be at Freeman through January 18, 2011.
The works of art in Once Upon a Time: Telling Stories Through Clay are just a handful of the hundreds of works of art from around the world on view every day at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet, Houston, TX 77005. Free all day every Thursday. Visit www.mfah.org  or call 713-639-7300 for more information.
