Our thoughts are with all of those enduring Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath this week. That includes many artists and arts institutions.  Here are some updates:

 

A Quick Look At Art&Seek’s Reporting

  • In 1988, Carter High School’s football team dominated the competition on the way to a state title. And then, that title was taken away. This week, “The Big Screen” team discusses Carter’s fall from grace with Adam Hootnick, director of “What Carter Lost,” the new ESPN documentary about the team.

  • The Dallas Museum of Art is still waiting to hear whether this summer’s Frida Kahlo look-alike contest officially set a Guinness World Record. There’s no disputing the crowd: More than 5,000 Frida wannabes showed up.The reaction was beyond the wildest dreams of Jose Santoyo and Ramiro Luna, two so-called “Dreamers” who thought up the idea for the event.  In our weekly State of the Arts conversation, Art&Seek’s Anne Bothwell sat down with them to learn how immigration activism led them to art.
