Art on the Lawn: Endless

9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. daily until April 30 @ Contemporary Arts Museum Houston


The altar columns of St. Peter's Basilica inspired, in part, Houston artist and Glassell School of Art Director Joseph Havel's sculpture Endless, currently installed in the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's front lawn fountain. (The piece is part of the ongoing series Art on the Lawn.) ''It's a beautiful sculpture whose base is made from bronze,'' says CAMH's senior curator, Valerie Cassel Oliver, ''and then it transitions to translucent resin.'' The sculpture's molds are based on auction catalogs and encyclopedias — books that Havel has either acquired or inherited — explains Oliver, who notes that Havel can see the piece from his office window at the Glassell.

Oliver has a bit of advice for visitors: ''Seeing the sculpture in daylight and then when it is artificially lighted at night are two different experiences.'' A night visit is a ''must-see,'' she insists.

Daily. Through April 30. 5216 Montrose. For information, call 713-284-8250 or visit camh.org. Free.
