Exhibition Tour: “Color into Light”

Spend a rainbow-colored afternoon at the MFAH

Think you’re up-to-date on all the latest offerings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston? Well, when a new and complex exhibition like the museum’s “Color into Light: Selections from the MFAH Collection” opens up, even the most ardent fan would enjoy a gallery tour. During the Exhibition Tour: “Color into Light,” a guide will take you through the 90 twentieth-century works that explore the use of color and space and you’ll gain a new understanding of the background of some wonderful art by Henri Matisse, Mark Rothko and Gyula Kosice, just to name a few. You’ll see contrasts of pure hue as you pass the works of Color Field artists like Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler. Then you’ll move along to works by Hans Hoffman, including Sparks; Carlos Cruz-Diez’s rose, green and purple-hued Cromosaturación, one of several room-size installations; and other works in glass, new media and video. 2 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org. $3.50 to $7.
