The Good Life 🎨 🎼

SUNDAY July 9, 2023

“Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.”

Socrates

There’s life — then there’s the good life. There’s no point in defining that as everyone has their own opinion, but most will agree that the ability to participate in the arts and cultural events plays a role.

Our article on the region’s music events in this issue features a range of concerts — from up and coming artists to accomplished musicians. Many are free or offer tickets at low prices so many folks can enjoy them.

One of East Texas’ greatest supporters of the arts was Ima Hogg. She lived more that a century ago but would feel proud to witness the many entertainment opportunities in the Upper East Side of Texas today. — Lisa Tang

THIS TIME OF YEAR

Ima Hogg Supported Historic Preservation and the Arts

No one is quite sure what Governor James Stephen Hogg and his wife Sarah Ann Stinson were thinking when they named their baby girl — born July 10, 1882 — Ima Hogg. Rumors were there was another daughter named Ura but at least that is untrue.

What is true is that Ima Hogg was born in Mineola and, despite her unfortunate name that was a part of Texas folklore, she became one of the world’s greatest philanthropists and patrons of the arts. READ MORE.
