What: An artful happening for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's young professionals group Art Crowd.

Where: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The 411: Focus of the gathering for more than 100 art fans in their 20s and 30s was Fangs, Feathers, and Fins: Sacred Creatures in Ancient American Art, the unusual exhibition focusing on the way that animals are depicted in the museum's extensive Pre-Columbian collection. In addition to private evening access to the exhibition in the Beck Building, guests were invited to try their artistic talents with a variety of colorful feathers and art pieces.

The party action included music by DJ Jonny J, light appetizers and buffet bites and specialty “Triple F” cocktails inspired by Fangs, Feathers, and Fins.

Who: Priscilla Pietz, Kevin Pope, Ansan Lutzel, Jay Martin, Arianna Bermudez, Lyndsay Sweeny, Jeneanne Orlowski, Mode Gumpeni and Nicole Papandrea.
