next stop: The Menil Collection Birthday Celebration

Hi Friends,

What is your next stop with your family this weekend (or beyond this weekend)?

Any birthday celebrations?  What about any institutions in your city ... are they celebrating their birthday?  Do they throw a party?

The Menil Collection (in Houston) is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year.  This is my favorite art museum to visit with Mama and Dada (and actually this was the first art museum I ever went to)!

We are very excited to see that there is an array of programming surrounding their 25th Anniversary celebration.  But today we wanted to tell you about their ... (info from the Menil):

Menil 25 Birthday Party 
Saturday, September 22, 2012, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
The Menil Collection, which opened in 1987, is commemorating its 25th Anniversary with events and programs through the end of the year. The celebration includes birthday cake, music, a City of Houston Proclamation, and children’s scavenger hunt. 

The special anniversary exhibition Dear John & Dominique: Letters and Drawings from the Menil Archives and a campus tour, Voices of the Menil: A Cell Phone Audio Walk are ongoing.

Houstonians: Do you plan on attending with your family?  It is definitely on our calendar!

Or if you are outside of Houston ... what cultural institution birthday celebrations have you been to?
