Virtual Theater

Now Screening: Bacurau

Stream It: March 25–31

Join us for the cathartic and genre-bending story of a community coming together during difficult times. Bacurau, described as a 21st-century Western set in near-future Brazil, follows Teresa, who comes home to mysterious events that mobilize the resourceful residents of the remote village of Bacurau.

From the top of our red hats to the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all the amazing ideas you’ve shared on social media, and for telling us your favorite MFAH works of art. Here’s one fan favorite from the Flapper era: Kees van Dongen’s The Corn Poppy. Named for the model’s brilliant red hat, the painting was instantly popular and has been reproduced in many forms.
