    Black History Month Kick-Off Block Party

    What better way to celebrate Black History Month than with a walk through the George Washington Carver Museum? The East Austin cultural center houses four permanent Black history exhibits, which present artifacts from prominent local families, the Jim Crow-era L.C. Anderson High School, and Black scientists and inventors, as well as a sculpture gallery full of Juneteenth freedom figureheads. Not purely educational, the free event offers a vendor market and “interactive arts and crafts programming,” all soundtracked by a vinyl DJ. – Carys Anderson

      Rodeo Austin Gala

      If there’s one thing Austin knows how to do right, it’s a country gala. Nonprofit Rodeo Austin raises funds to benefit kids around the state with live entertainment from the legendary Robert Earl Keen (“The Road Goes on Forever,” “Feelin’ Good Again”) at a Stetsons-encouraged bash with cocktails, gourmet dinner, fundraising games, and auctions of the silent and live variety. Scoot your boots down to Palmer at 6, and get ready for the Rodeo to fire up March 8. – Kat McNevins

      Cool Day

      A two-person exhibition centered on early Aughts-style internet collage opened Jan. 13 and can be seen Fridays and Saturdays through early February. Mia Scarpa’s mixed-media paintings conjure the edge of 2000s chatrooms and 3D-rendered JPEGs, while Grace Horan’s playful sculptures reference childhood friendships and I Spy books. The gallery press release teases, “Their images and objects evoke an ethos of collecting that animates everything from official archives to family photo albums to online image boards. The result of such an experience is a schizophrenic reading of images that hardly make sense together – except in the fact that they do.”– Lina Fisher
