Houston, or better yet, HOUSTON, is a fascinating city: a mix of Southern hospitality, multicultural sensibility, and all-American can-do. Big, bold, sprawling, ever-growing, brash, arrogant, awash in petro-dollars and open for business with its port and international trade zone, it is home town to more than 50 Fortune 500 companies. Relentlessly positive, always looking to the future, Houston is a true international city. Our excursion will include special access to the renowned Menil Collection, dedicated to the viewer’s personal encounter with the collection’s works; curator tours of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, a dynamic cultural complex with an encyclopedic collection; Rice University Gallery, devoted to contemporary site-specific installations; an evening visit to the ethereal “Twilight Epiphany Skyspace ” by James Turrell; and a very special private collection.
Trip details are included as a separate document.
