FInal weekend for Caravaggio at the Kimbell

A dose of art history

Did you know that there are less than a 100 surviving Caravaggio works out there? Good thing the Kimbell snagged the exhibit. Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome displays more than 50 of the painter’s works, one of the largest exhibitions of his work in North America.

DEETS: Kimbell Art Museum, 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd, Fort Worth. Through Jan. 8. $14. KimbellMuseum.org.

Next month’s Big D Rodeo in Alvarado to feature James Allen Clark, Big Diamond Dash barrel race

At Big D Rodeo
James Allen Clark

The Texas Gay Rodeo Association’s Big D Rodeo is coming up in less than a month, and GayCowboyCentral.com has made the video below to promote the event.

The rodeo will be Sept. 10-12 at the Diamond W Arena in Alvarado. In addition to all the usual fun — the Wild Drag Race, the Goat Dressing, the bull riding and the chute dogging and more — James Allen Clark will be on hand to perform his debut single, “If I Didn’t Know Better.” Go out to his website to hear the song. I did, and it’s quite good.

The rodeo opens Friday with exhibitions from noon to 3 p.m., and the Big Diamond Dash Open 5D Barrel Race, with $1,000 in added money, at 6 p.m.
