Across The Street from The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston…

If you happen to be visiting the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas then you have an added bonus…and it’s…FREE (my favorite four letter word!)!! Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen have done lots of generous things for our city and here is another one! The Sculpture Garden!  It’s not huge – maybe 1 acre I’d guess, but it’s nice to take a leisure stroll through the garden and see what’s there. The garden was designed by American. Isamu Noguchi, who was a famous artist himself.  He was a famous sculptor, furniture maker, lamp designer and landscape architect. (Noguchi sounds like he did it ALL…well, sorta like eh um a Mom! Yes, I’m in a silly mood)
