    Hollywood’s Sistine Chapel: Sacred Sets for Stage & Screen

    Six hand-painted soundstage backdrops are on exhibit alongside artwork from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts. The backdrops, on loan from Texas Performing Arts at UT-Austin, were created for MGM’s 1968 papal drama, The Shoes of the Fisherman, starring Anthony Quinn. These six replicas of Renaissance masterpieces in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel were nearly discarded before being rescued in 2017.
    Through April 4. $10-20; free on Thursdays, 4-6pm, and first Sundays, noon-5pm.

    Oyster Season

    It was a brave soul who ate the first oyster, and now the bivalve mollusks are on the dinner table. This is the time to get the freshest oysters as fishermen come into the Rockport/Fulton Harbor around 4-5pm. The annual Fulton Oyster Festival has been canceled for this year, but there are still plenty of oysters available at local markets and restaurants.
    Through April 30
