Texas’ vast and vibrant arts scene has long attracted east and west coasters alike. While the big-name museums—Houston’s Menil, the Kimbell in Fort Worth, Marfa’s Chinati Foundation—get a lot of attention, the state’s galleries, festivals, and art walks also deserve recognition for showcasing and supporting local artists. Art lovers should plan their trips around events like Austin’s First Thursdays, the Friday ArtWalk in Corpus Christi, and the First Friday Art Trail in Lubbock, among others.
