Headed to Houston over the weekend to visit the Houston Fine Art Fair and check out all the amazing museums and collections the big city has to offer. I enjoyed seeing the MFA Houston’s James Turrell Retrospective that is currently on view in conjunction with his major retrospectives at the Guggenheim and LACMA. Hoping I have time to make the trek out to California before the show goes down in April so I can pick up the “I visited all three cities T-Shirt. ” Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the art packed weekend. James Turrell, The Light Inside 1999 permanently installed at the MFA Houston.

This week I went to the Guggenheim to experience the James Turrell exhibition (meh) and the Whitney Summer opening to check out the re-installation of a really interesting Robert Irwin site-specific piece. Both museums prevented photographs from being taken, therefore sneaky iphones pictures are all I have. James Turrell, Aten Reign 2013. Currently installed in the Guggenheim Atrium.
Robert Irwin, Scrim Viel – Black Rectangle – Natural Light 1977. A site-Specific work that just got re-installed at the Whitney.
