  2. Feb. 15, 2005, 6:12AM BEQUEST TO MFA COULD SET RECORD FOR AN ART MUSEUM Oil heiress's gift ultimately may be up to $450 million By SHANNON BUGGS Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, soon could be entered in the annals of philanthropy as the recipient of the largest cash gift to a fine arts museum ever publicly announced. Caroline Wiess Law, the daughter of one of Humble Oil Co.'s founders, made the museum the prime beneficiary of her estate. When all of Law's assets are sold and the legal proceedings conclude, possibly by the end of this year, the museum could net
  3. Art when up on a 3 block stretch on Navigation Blvd. http://swamplot.com/arting-around-on-navigation-blvd/2013-08-21/
  4. A new building is in the talking stages for the MFA. It would mainly house the 20th century and contemporary collections. The museum has 3 sites in mind. One is at the current garage location on Fannin. Another is across Binz from the garage and a third is north of the Mies wing off Main. There are any number of world-class architects worthy of the job. I'd like to hear any suggestions you might have regarding the selection. Here's a few of mine: Renzo Piano [Menil Collection; Cy Twombly] Yoshio Taniguchi [MOMA and the new Aisa Museum in Houston] Zaha Hadid [Rosenthal Center for Contemporar
  5. One of the blogs I follow, Brand New, has done an extensive piece about CAMH's new logo, which originates from the shape of the building. Linky: feed://feeds.feedburner.com/ucllc/brandnew Here's the before and after:
  6. I found these prints at an estate sale a few years ago and would love to know more about the art and artist, as well as find more similar prints of historic Houston buildings! It appears the artist is “Watt Bell” or perhaps “Walter Bell.” I have prints of the Houston Cotton Exchange and Board of Trade Building, The Hogg Building, and the Sweeney-Coombs & Frederick Building. Does anyone know anything about these prints and their origin or know anything about the artist?
  7. So I was driving down Studewood tonite and at the corner of 11th where they are rebuilding that historic building that was hit by a car, I noticed something that really pissed me off. All the bricks that are stacked outside from the original structure were tagged by guess who? It seems the crew that is working on the building was able to remove the majority of the paint but you can still see the outline of the name ROWDY. If anyone spots this moron, take a pic and call the cops. This idiot should be ashamed to call himself a Houstonian.

  9. http://ultimatefortbend.com/stories/327839-rosenberg-development-corporation-approves-agreement-with-imperial-performing-arts Rosenberg's Development Corporation agreed to the plan put forward by Sugar Land based Imperial Arts. The plan would generally allow the company to take office space near the Post Office, and would commit to restoring the old Cole Liberty Theater on Third Street. Ultimately, the goal is to create a "cultural district", sanctioned by the state's Arts Commission.

  12. I saw on Channel 2 last night that all four Beatles, instruments and all (during their Sgt. Petter phase) will soon be standing 35 feet tall somewhere along I-10 brought to us by David Adickes. Mr. Adickes purchased the land himself. Adickes is also doing Texas Legends, in Mount Rushmore fashion, along I-10 as well. Snap!
  13. Article from Woodlands Online: The Woodlands Township and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion look at possibility of Performing Arts Center https://www.woodlandsonline.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=63185 "At its May 22, 2019, Board of Directors Meeting, The Woodlands Township unanimously approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands (CWMP) regarding the possibility of creating a Performing Arts Center in The Woodlands.CWMP, better known as The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and the Township are discussing
  14. I'm surprised I wasn't able to find this on HAIF. I ran a few searches, but nothing came up. Apologies if this is a repeat thread... Swamplot reported in May that the Univ. of St. Thomas will be building a new performance arts center near the Menil campus. The article indicates that the building will be four stories and just under 100k square feet. Here's the accompanying rendering: University of St. Thomas's Performing Arts Center Moving in Next to Menil Campus

  16. The Uptown Houston website lists this new project as: A.D. Players Theatre: New construction is planned for a performance theatre at Yorktown and Westheimer. The 85,000 square foot theatre complex will hold three theaters with a total seating of 1,000. The theatre should be complete within three years. The A.D. Players broke ground on the new location February 2006. Do we know any additional information? The AD Players theatre website does not have any information about the architect, renderings, or any other information. This will be a great venue. What else can we find out? -Yak-

  19. This was mentioned in another Midtown thread.. but figured a new project needed a new thread. Swamplot just broke a story on a new Arts Center planned for Midtown, about a block north of the Ensemble Station. 90,000 SF 3 story Owner/Developer - Independent Arts Collaborative, a consortium of local arts organizations — including Fotofest, Diverseworks, the Houston Arts Alliance, Musiqa, Suchu Dance, Opera Vista, Catastrophic Theater, Nameless Sound, the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, and Main St. Theater.

They offer private music lessons and instruction. Located close to excellent schools and parks. Grocery stores. Karina's school of dance And trissage.

  21. The Heights Arts Studios and Gallery has taken over what was previously a grocery store at 129 Aurora St, at the corner of Aurora and Harvard. Just two blocks from their first building, a 9 studio gallery on 27th St., the new building on Aurora houses 20 artist studios. Their first public event is this Saturday, December 8th from 12pm to 6pm, right before Lights in the Heights! Enjoy refreshments and art for days while you take a tour of the facilities...some of the studios include
  22. No official release from MMD, but here's a post from Innerlooped. Link: http://innerlooped.com/1897/midtown-officially-ae-district/ So what does this designation mean for Midtown. Is there a case study for how this designation affects a district? I'm curious.
  23. I didn't see this anywhere else, so here goes... A new folk-art inspired greenspace called Smither Park is being planned for the 1/2 acre lot adjacent to the Orange Show. The park's development is being sponsored by the Orange Show in memory of John H. Smither. The design is by Dan Phillips (although I can't tell if he's doing the overall park layout or just the pieces within the park). Here's the website: http://smitherpark.org/Smither_Park_Website/Welcome.html ... and a rendering (found on the site):
