Open House at Sam Houston Park

1000 Bagby Street
Houston, TX

Open House is an interactive temporary public sculpture created by local artists, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck. Sourced from Cherry House Moving Company, the 1940s-era house has circular holes into the walls creating a “Swiss cheese” appearance, and collaged interior walls with vintage images sourced from family, friends, and local resale shops that represent the city’s people, places, and past. Visitors can walk through Open House, soaking in some of Houston’s history while viewing both the modern skyscrapers of Downtown Houston and the landscape of Sam Houston Park through the holes that have been carved out of the house. – downtownhouston.org

Cloud Column at MFAH

Houston, TX

Two years ago, a team of engineers and MFAH art handlers gently settled Houston’s now-iconic Cloud Column into place—all 21,000 pounds of it. Watch and listen as artist Anish Kapoor’s project manager describes how the monumental sculpture completed its journey, which started with an Atlantic crossing from England; continued with careful transport by truck in a custom-made crate from an MFAH storage facility; and finished with Cloud Column being skillfully hoisted into place and uncrated at its permanent home: The Brown Foundation, Inc. Plaza on March 27, 2018. – mfah.org
