On Exhibit

Two Houston institutions hosted truly museum-quality galas, showing off beautiful exhibition spaces in grand new ways. The Asia Society Texas Center’s annual bash, the black-tie Tiger Ball, celebrated the beauty and culture of India. Honoring Shushila and Durga Agrawal and raising more than $1 million, the colorful event moved from the grand hall out to a massive tent, where Bollywood dancers performed for guests. Meanwhile, the Houston Museum of Natural Science also hosted its yearly gala, which adopted the theme of the Big Bang Ball and celebrated the newly renovated Burke Baker Planetarium. Chemistry demonstrations entertained guests, who sipped cocktails made with liquid nitrogen and helped raise more than $850K for the museum’s educational programs. Talk about a big bang!
