Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA
My husband and I have been long-time visitors and supporters of the Menil. It encapsulates so much that is special about Houston: history, elegance, texture, diversity, and color. I grew up going to the Menil and wished that one day, I would live around the corner. So lo and behold, I moved around the corner when I was 26 years old and become more involved with the Museum. Although not everyone around the country may recognize the name, it truly is a beacon of culture in the city of Houston. A necessary stop for all visitors and a soft spot in the heart of all residents. My husband knows me so well - he even PROPOSED to me at the Menil. Well, technically, the Menil main building was closed, so he had to propose in the Cy Twombly building - but it was magical and perfect and makes me tear up every time I see pictures.
