On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: We discuss what we know — and what we don’t — about the omicron variant of COVID-19 and what threat it poses to Houston.

Also this hour: Want to be a successful entrepreneur? Well, you should probably go to school in Houston. That’s because, for the third straight year, the entrepreneurship program at the University of Houston's Bauer College of Business has been named the top undergraduate program of its kind in the nation. And Rice University's entrepreneurship program was ranked the nation’s top graduate program. We learn more about what makes these programs so successful.

Then, Meg Tapp of The Garden Club of Houston answers your questions.

And an exhibit at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston called The Dirty South explores how the aesthetic traditions of the African American South have shaped visual art and musical expression over the last century.
