Wings over Water installation at the George R. Brown Convention Center Plaza

Houston First has unveiled two key art installations—“Soaring in the Clouds” by artist Ed Wilson and “Wings over Water” by Joe O’Connell and Creative Machines—as a part of the Houston Infusion initiative. The “Soaring in the Clouds” installation is suspended from the ceiling of the grand lobby in the George R. Brown Convention Center and features approximately 300 elements that resemble flocks of birds in flight. “Wings over Water” is a kinetic sculpture that moves as visitors enter the George R. Brown Convention Center Plaza in downtown Houston.

New Venue: The Broad

Downtown Los Angeles has another stunning new landmark, The Broad, a museum as contemporary and daring as the art within its distinctive honeycomb- like exterior.

The Broad is a $140 million showcase for philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad’s 2,000-piece contemporary art collection. Visitors can reserve or wait in line for free admission to the permanent collection, which includes art world luminaries such as Jasper Johns, Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha, Jean- Michel Basquiat and Robert Rauschenberg.
