Brazosport Art League
Learn how to draw, watercolor, attend an art film and discussion, and get inspiration from the works of first-rate artists at The Center’s Gallery. Showcasing the talents of local and international art makers in exhibits that change every five or six weeks, each visit to the gallery offers something new. If you’re looking to work on your own craft, enroll in one of the frequently held workshops. Make sure to stop by the Art Shop to browse the selection of original artwork, cards, ceramics, jewelry, and one-of-a-kind gifts you can take home with you.
Brazosport Center Stages
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a performance by the phenomenally-talented actors at the Brazosport Center Stages, part of The Center for the Arts & Sciences. The oldest community theater in the Gulf Coast puts on five shows from September through July at either the Dow Arena or the Freeport LNG Theater.
Brazosport Museum of Natural History
Stop in the kid-friendly Brazosport Museum of Natural History at The Center for the Arts & Sciences and learn about the wooly mammoths, saber tooth cats, and dinosaurs that once roamed the Texas Gulf Coast. Frommer’s named it one of the top ten museums in Texas. Encounter rare fossils, rocks, minerals, an impressive seashell collection, and a complete allosaur skeleton. Displays also include butterflies, moths, Texas wildlife and birds. On the second Sunday of each month, the Brazosport Museum of Natural History hosts Sunday Science Fun where you’ll explore various science and math concepts in a fun and interactive way!
Journey past the moon and the Milky Way at the BASF Planetarium in The Center for the Arts & Sciences. Planetarium shows here change monthly and put you in the shoes of an astronaut and educate on our universe, planets, stars, constellations, black holes, and more. NASA astronauts have trained here, and the planetarium’s interactive displays and computer stations put you up close to the mysteries of deep space. The BASF Planetarium also displays data from the Space Telescope Science Institute in Maryland that’s updated regularly like images from Hubble, Spitzer, and Chandra telescopes. If you’re in the area the second Tuesday of the month, stop by the Astronomy Club gathering.
Brazosport Symphony Orchestra
There’s nothing like watching a group of people come together to play instruments in harmony. The Brazosport Symphony Orchestra presents a gathering of music lovers and performers in a magical way. Check the schedule when you’re in the area for the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of musical concerts that appeal to all ages, including tribute bands and holiday classics. There are six performances held each season at The Clarion on the campus of Brazosport College in Lake Jackson.
