Public Art of the University of Houston System presents An Evening with Frank Stella
Public Art of the University of Houston System and program chair Judy Nyquist invite the public to attend "An Evening with Frank Stella." Stella is one of the most highly regarded post-war American artists working today.
Moores Opera House is the site of Stella’s "Euphonia," a mural commission completed in 1997. This immersive artwork - the largest in the UHS Public Art collection - spans three areas: the 100-foot-long barrel-vaulted ceiling of the lobby, a large-scale triptych on the mezzanine level, and the catwalk inside the opera house. The collage of abstracted imagery and patterns is an exuberant celebration of color and rhythm. The program celebrates the 20th anniversary of the work’s completion.
Following an introduction by Michael Guidry, curator of Public Art, Stella will discuss his work and the role of art in public places with Alison de Lima Greene, the Isabel Brown Wilson Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and Rick Lowe, faculty member at the UH Katherine G. McGovern College of the Arts and founder of Project Row Houses.
