Texas loves putting Texas on Everything

So Diverseworks Art Space is probably the coolest art space I have ever been to. Located in an old factory warehouse on the outskirts of the city this arts organization is made up of a gigantic theater for performances, a huge gallery (which will be our home for the next week), a new screening space and countless other curated surfaces showcasing everything from a graffiti exhibit of local tags to a cigarette vending machine turned art vending machine ( for $5- which I think is actually less than  pack of smokes- a little piece of art pops out; hand felted miniatures, glass blown hair pins, tiny paintings!). I am really excited to be allowed to be a part of this place for a bit. And I am also super excited that the entire Diverseworks staff took a breather last week to have a special screening of Gravity- leaving many teary eyed and someone to even gasp aloud "What!?!" during an unexpected plot twist! What a great welcome from such a great place!
