The Museum of Drawing, Houston will begin operations with an awareness and fundraising effort at Boheme Cafe and Wine Bar, 307 Fairview, in Houston on Thursday, November 11 from 5-10pm with one of Spacetaker’s "cultured coctail" events. Self-described as "a space created to exhibit the origin of the line, the depth of drawing and the evolution of the line coming to life in modern and contemporary forms of video," The MOD will strive to "be an international influence pertaining to the significance and impact of drawing within today’s dialogue." It doesn’t seem to be affiliated with the Menil Drawing Instutute, and the mysterious new institution so far consists of a brief press release, a bare bones website, and a "donate now" button.
