The Houston Matters Roadshow, recorded in front of a live audience at the Asia Society Texas Center on June 28, 2016.Houston’s Museum District is home to 19 cultural institutions dedicated to the promotion of science, history, the arts and culture. We’re home to America’s sixth-largest art museum and to the nation’s only museum primarily dedicated to the legacy of African-American soldiers. Our Museum District boasts centers for photography, art and contemporary craft.

On this special edition of Houston Matters — recorded in front of a live audience at the Asia Society Texas Center in Houston’s Museum District — we discuss all that the Museum District has to offer.

Also this hour: a conversation with Houstonian and longtime tennis star Zina Garrison. A story from Ty Mahany. A Museum District edition of The Full Menu. A special edition of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. And a performance from singer/songwriter Tony Henry.
