The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents Nancy and Rich Kinder Building opening
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will open their new Nancy and Rich Kinder Building to the public. Designed by Steven Holl Architects especially for the display of the important and rapidly growing MFAH collections of 20th- and 21st-century art, to which it dedicates more than 100,000 square feet of gallery space, the Kinder Building is the final component in the Museum’s eight-year project to expand and enhance its Susan and Fayez S. Sarofim Campus in the heart of Houston.
A series of seven major site-specific commissioned artworks will be inaugurated with the Kinder Building, serving as portals that connect this new structure with the other components of the campus. Commissioned artists include El Anatsui, Byung Hoon Choi, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Olafur Eliasson, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Cristina Iglesias, and Ai Weiwei.\
To celebrate the opening, the MFAH will offer free general admission across the entire campus from November 1 through 8.
