Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents "Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, 1963–2017" opening day
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will present "Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, 1963–2017," the first major exhibition dedicated to sculptures by renowned American contemporary artist Jack Whitten.
While Whitten has long been celebrated for his work as an innovative abstract painter, this exhibition reveals an extensive and entirely unknown body of the late artist’s work. "Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, 1963–2017" will feature 40 of Whitten’s sculptures made over the course of his five-decade career - each created with a diverse spectrum of materials, including wood, marble, copper, bone, fishing wire, and personal mementos - and a selection of his paintings.
The exhibit will be on display until May 27.
