Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA
I have been a frequent visitor and neighbor of the Menil for well over a decade. I remember first visiting the Rothko Chapel and the Cy Twombly exhibit when I was in high school. I had no idea at the time how lucky I was to have access to world-class art for free. I could just walk in!
The reason I go back to the Menil, and support the Menil with my time, patronage and energy is that it gives so much away and asks nothing in return. Thousands upon thousands of people from hundreds of countries in the world visit the museum each year and see some of the greatest art work ever made.
My wife and I started coming to public events and decided to join. We began attending Contemporaries events and were welcomed by the community, and have learned a tremendous amount and gained a new appreciation for the art and philosophy of the Menil.
The work that continues in carrying on the mission and legacy of the museum's founders is inspiring, and it is impressive that the museum continues to improve and grow. It is an organization that I plan to be involved with for a long time to come!
