Two years ago, Justin Sherburn brought a wonderful Big Bend-inspired piece of music to Houston. Sherburn describes his Montopolis ensemble as an “independent chamber music group,” in which three quarters of a string quartet merge with keyboards, drums and guitar in a sound that ranges from atmospheric to powerful. Sherburn said his next project would focus on the Texas Gulf Coast, and true to his word, he and Montopolis are coming to Houston this weekend with “The Living Coast,” a multimedia performance that includes live music, tales and a film about nature.

2. Niki de Saint Phalle
The Menil collection captures a pivotal decade in the work of Niki de Saint Phalle, an artist whose groundbreaking work began with violent works critical of the patriarchy changing tone in the mid-1960s for celebrations of the female form. Her works “Tir” and “Nana” here represent two phases that differ in the way the artist pushed against genre constructions in the 1960s. The exhibition at the Menil Collection is a rare exhibition in the United States of his work, with pieces collected from around the world.
