Whether you want to go to an event that happens every day, every week or one that only happens every so often, July is full of events we can get you to! Look at some of the exciting events going on this month accessible via our system.
TWU Gallery: Wish You Were Here
Tired of the all-too-familiar landmarks you see on postcards in every city? Texas Woman’s University (TWU) has the perfect exhibit for you! TWU is giving artists the opportunity to participate in its annual postcard exhibition where you can create original art, share a story or express yourself on the front of a postcard. From now until Saturday, July 28, at the TWU East/West Galleries, stop by between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to create a completely unique postcard. Ride Denton Connect Routes 5 and 6 to get to this FREE exhibit. For more information and to print off a postcard, visit twu.edu/visual-arts/galleries/exhibitions-and-programming/.
