Houston Maritime Museum Lecture: "The Bicentennial Project of the Port of Houston: A Pictorial History of the Port"


The Bicentennial Project of the Port of Houston by artist Judith-Ann Saks depicts the history of a determined little inland town that wanted to be a port. From a meandering bayou to a first class port, Houston has achieved remarkable accomplishments — a port that is first in the United States in foreign waterborne tonnage, first in U.S. imports and exports, and second in U.S. total tonnage.

The paintings are rich in historic detail and depict the remarkable history of what determined great leaders can do against many odds to make a port, which in turn created a city now fourth largest in the United States.
