|Jeb in the Cruz-Diez Disco 70's chamber|
The Fine Arts Museum Houston is everything a big city art museum should be. After seeing the impressionist exhibit and drooling over a Degas' Horse painting, we strolled over to the Beck building through the hallucinatory Turrell light tunnel and then on to the Law building to the chromatic environments of Carlos Cruz-Diez. This retrospective bears the stamp of a true revolutionary and visionary artist.We loved this room below, but weren't too excited about the very worn little slippers we had to wear. Totally worth it though.
I can only wonder what Warhol would have thought of The Beer Can House. An engagement with mass culture on the grandest scale! Is this a piece on scale with Barbara Kruger and Andy Warhol or is it the house of a hops lunatic?The creator, John Milkovisch Said,“I don‘consider this art. It‘s just a pastime. But sometimes I lie awake at night, trying to figure out why I do it.”
