“Chihuly: Works from Texas Collections”
The Tyler Museum of Art continues its 45th anniversary celebration by offering a new take on one of the most celebrated artists ever to exhibit at the venue. “Chihuly: Works from Texas Collections,” an exhibition spotlighting the broad scope of glass master Dale Chihuly’s artistic vision and impact over a 40-year career, opens to the public Sunday, Feb. 7 and continues through May 15 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.
Rather than focusing on a single series – as when the TMA presented the popular “Chihuly Baskets” in 2001-2002 – “Works from Texas Collections” runs the spectrum from the early 1980s to the present decade, highlighting the wide range of Chihuly works held in local private collections and public institutions throughout the including the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The Contemporary Austin, and the UT Tyler Cowan Center.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, and free for students, children under 12, Tyler Junior College and City of Tyler employees. For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit www.tylermuseum.org

A walk for a Good Cause! Walk4Water
How far do you walk to get water? Four miles? One mile? Or is it just a few steps to the faucet? Every day in developing countries, women and children walk an average of 4 miles to collect water for their families. On average, a child dies every 21 seconds from water-related illnesses. More children die every day from dirty water than from malaria, AIDS, and measles COMBINED. That is why thousands of people around the country choose to Walk4Water.
Join us in Tyler for our third Walk4Water as we raise money to drill wells in India. Walk with your family and friends, or make some new friends on the Rose Rudman Trail. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after you are done. We will gather near the pavilion at the corner of Donnybrook and Shiloh beginning at 10:00 am. Register online at www.walk4water.org and receive a t-shirt the day of the event. Donations are also accepted online

Everybody’s favorites! Come for a laugh! Card 53 returns to the stage of Liberty Hall with an all new show of “make-em-ups.” Card 53 Comedy is a short form improv comedy troupe located in Tyler, TX. A typical Card 53 show consists of eight 3-5 minute sketches or “games” where the audience will be asked to give a suggestion such as a location, movie genre, or emotion. The actors will then make everything up on stage, going off their instincts using props and costumes as needed. Due to the unpredictable nature of the show, the actors strive very hard to provide a professionally clean show. Facing the challenge of the unknown a typical Card 53 should be appropriate for ages 13 and up. “We’re really excited and honored to still be doing this in Tyler for 5 years strong. It seems we’re really building momentum and are at our best. I invite anyone has hasn’t been in a long time to come check us out and hope to see a lot of new faces,” Jamey Whitley, Card 53 co-founder
