Visual Arts Alliance presents Lester Marks Collection Art Talk and Tour
Visual Arts Alliance will hold an art talk and tour of the Lester Marks Collection. Marks, President of LCM Partners, Ltd., and a represented artist himself, has been collecting contemporary art for 25 years. He has served as a trustee for both the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, among others.
Marks' home is a “mini-museum” of contemporary art. The home is built around an outdoor courtyard displaying the stone sculpture of the British environmental artist Richard Long. There are passageways to three small gallery spaces, a studio, and even a “subterranean playroom” for the adventurous. The collection features museum-quality works from internationally renowned artists as well works by hundreds of regional and Houston-area artists.
