That’s Brilliant! American Brilliant Cut Glass

May 22 through September 5, 2018
"The American Brilliant Period exemplifies the splendor of the Gilded Age, when those with means covered every surface with decoration. In the case of brilliant cut glass, heavy, leaded glass is covered with deep cuts that catch reflective light, making it glisten. The exhibition features pieces from the permanent collection as well as those borrowed from generous lenders, and includes extraordinarily intricate works from prominent late 19th and early 20th century firms such as C. Dorflinger & Sons, J. Hoare & Company, Pairpoint Glass Company, and T.G. Hawkes & Company."

Carlos Cruz-Diez: Spatial Chromointerference

May 12, 2018 through January 13, 2019
A new installation in Houston's Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern by artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. "Cruz-Diez’s Spatial Chromointerference (1974/2018) creates a situation in space involving the dematerialization, transfiguration, and ambiguity of color through movement. By projecting moving chromatic interference modules on objects and people, these become transparent and virtually change condition and form. The spectator becomes both actor and author of a complete chromatic event, which evolves through space."
