MFAH @ Freeman

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.
