Anything about the legendary art curator Walter Hopps is worth reading, but his long awaited memoir, The Dream Colony: A Life in Art, finished posthumously by Anne Doran, takes first position for art reads this year, particularly for Houstonians. Hopps was the Menil's family's star, and long before that he was an enfant terrible with a prodigious eye for talent and, reportedly, a photographic memory. His trip through 20th century art was long, fascinating, and storied, and the turnout at this reading and book signing will likely reflect that.
