Dear Friends of Rice Gallery,
There are changes ahead for Rice University Art Gallery, and I write to keep you updated.
Our current exhibition will be the final installation at Rice Gallery. Sol LeWitt's Glossy and Flat Black Squares (Wall Drawing #813) is a re-installation of a work LeWitt originally created for the Gallery in 1997. This majestic work is a fitting tribute to the installations presented over the past 22 years, the exceptional artists who made them, and all those who have supported this idea, this space, and its artists.
Following the LeWitt exhibition conclusion on May 14th, Rice Gallery will close its doors. Although I am sorry to see this chapter in the Gallery's remarkable history end, its spirit will live on at the Moody Center for the Arts, where I will serve as chief curator. The Moody Center will elevate and celebrate the arts at Rice in exciting ways. Rice students, faculty, staff, and the visiting public will continue to find inspiration through the visual and performing arts, as presented in the new, architecturally inspiring building.
Thank you for supporting us through this transition, knowing that the arts at Rice will grow, thrive, and continue to be a beacon of creativity on campus and in Houston.
