bad texas art

A good-hearted by heavy-handed work by Houston artist Vinod R. Patel was displayed in the DeVos convention center, down the hall a ways from where the big winner was installed. Here, a conscientious viewer reads Patel's statement. Connecting more directly with artists was something that visitors thoroughly enjoyed. Again and again, the impulse was to know the story and the individual behind the work--not something many art professionals, including artists, necessarily want to foreground.
