It didn't take long for Houston to feel like home again; here are a few of my favorite art related pieces and places in Houston.
Mies van der Rohe building of the MFAH
MFAH's new Frank Stella acquisition,
Palmito Ranch, 1961
Having a drink with Matisse at a private party at the MFAH.
The Menil Collection is my absolute favorite place in Houston;
Renzo Piano's building is unlike anything else in this city.
The Aurora Picture show put on an event where they projected vintage video games on the side of the Menil on a Friday night; how cool, right?!
Blurry picture of the current Walter de Maria exhibit, Trilogies, at the Menil; these cars are flawless.
Barnett Newman Obelisk outside the Rothko Chapel.
Cy Twombly gallery, also designed by Renzo Piano.
Inside Cy Twombly gallery, may he rest in peace.
I was lucky enough to get to go to the celebration of Cy Twombly's career at the Menil, where his son and the curator of painting and sculpture at MoMA (!!!), among others, spoke about their memories of Cy; it was absolutely beautiful.

Houston, it's good to be back. I see great things in our future.
