If you weren't at Artopia on Saturday, you missed a lot of really cool stuff, not limited to the first-ever performance by a MasterMinds Award winner (in this case, Melissa Waddy-Thibodeaux of the Buffalo Soldiers Museum performing as Harriet Tubman) and an ephemeral mural by Houston's best street artists that is probably being painted over at this very moment.
But seriously, Artopia is always a fun, kick-ass event and this year was no exception. There's a reason it sells out. In addition to performances by local arts orgs, lots of cool stuff to look at on the walls, tasting menus from Houston-area restaurants and plenty of wine to keep the vibe going, it's also a chance for the Press to recognize the MasterMind winners, who represent growth and promise in the Houston art community.
So if you missed this year's event, or if you just want to relive the fun, check out the video recap below. And make a mental note to buy tickets for next year.
