If you have out of town guests and have no idea how to keep them entertained, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston has an impressive — pun intended — option.
The Age of Impressionism, a traveling exhibition that comprises 73 works by notable French artists, on loan from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass., opens Sunday and is on view through March 23, 2014.
