PROGRAMS / Aurora Award Dinner


We at Aurora are sad to announce that, due to unforeseen circumstances, Aurora Award honoree Lorna Simpson will not be able to come to Houston as planned and, as a result, this year’s Aurora Award Dinner is now cancelled. Our staff, board, and event chairs have given this serious consideration. Being that Aurora Picture Show and, especially, this annual event are focused the on the direct connection between artists and audiences, we’ve opted not to host this event in the absence of its featured artist. While we’re disappointed not to be able to celebrate Simpson and to announce the first such cancellation in the 19-year history of the Aurora Award Dinner, we’re extremely grateful for a fantastic, loving, and generous arts community that has supported this event and all of Aurora’s year-round artistic and educational programming! We extend our thanks, our apologies, and our promise of many more unique art experiences to come.  
We’re communicating directly with those who’ve purchased tickets and tables. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at or during business hours at 713-868-2101
