About Modern Twist

FREE ADMISSION | 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Bamboo is characterized by strength, flexibility, and lightness—bending, not breaking, with strong winds, while enduring harsh winters. Modern Twist explores the innovative shape bamboo art has taken in Japan since the mid-twentieth century. With rare wall-hung installations and sculptures never before seen in Texas, the exhibition both engages and educates audiences about a vibrant cultural art form.

About The Museum Experience

The Museum Experience features four walkable “zones” to help visitors navigate through the Houston Museum District and learn more about all 19 museums in a more personal way. On the last Saturday of January, April, July and September, each zone showcases a handful of museums at a time, complete with special programming, pedicabs in select zones and food trucks.

Located on the northeast portion of the Museum District, Zone 2 includes eight museums. Those museums are: Lawndale Art Center, Holocaust Museum Houston, DiverseWorks, Czech Center Museum Houston, Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Houston Museum of African American Culture, and Asia Society Texas Center.
