For the seventh year, AAMD is uniting its membership to celebrate Art Museum Day!  David Adickes has produced other big and exciting figures which dot the landscape here in Houston and elsewhere across the nation. One of the largest art installations came into being as Sesquicentennial Park celebrating the 150th birthday of Houston was getting designed.

Soon after getting news of the numerous entities who wished their collections to be noticed in one particular central location, the museum started to gather paintings of its personal, organize exhibitions, raise money, and do what ever else was needed in order for the new institution to come to life.

They purchased 12 acres in the Back Bay area, and they went to Europe as a committee to study all the museums positioned there. He has produced not only distinctive and eyecatching colorful sculptures but also paints and creates performs of art on paper. The trustees of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston decided in 1898, only 22 years right after the museum opened, that they needed a new developing.

These pictures have been taken on May possibly 5th, the exact same day that my husband and I visited the George H.W. Bush Monument in Sesquicentennial Park in downtown Houston. It is titled the 7 Wonders and it consists of 7 seventy foot tall pillars created by artist Mel Chin who was assisted by a lot of hundreds of Houston school youngsters. He grew up in the modest town of Huntsville just north of Houston and has emerged as an artist recognized nation wide for his larger than life sculptures of President’s heads and more. But now that I study your post would have loved to have seen this museum as well.

The Boston Athenaeum, a membership library which opened in 1807, wanted its paintings and sculpture to be seen, and the City of Boston wanted to showcase its historic portraits. Living in NY (Long Island), I traveled to NYC typically particularly before I had children.
