10 Things You Have To Do This Weekend

Thu 9/24
Iris


After informing White House interiors under nine presidents (from Truman to Clinton), nonagenarian style icon Iris Apfel flew into the public eye via the Costume Institute’s “Rara Avis.” By celebrating her eclectic, nonconformist take on fashion (think Mr. Magoo glasses, kaleidoscopic prints and layers of jewelry), the 2005 exhibition turned Apfel into a “geriatric starlet” at the center of Albert Maysles’ 2014 documentary Iris. Described by Vogue as “a sartorial safari seen through round, rose-colored glasses,” Iris screens at the McNay as part of the museum’s Get Reel Film Series. Free, 7pm Thu, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org.Bryan Rindfuss
