"North Looks South: Building the Latin American Art Collection"

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's newest exhibit, "North Looks South: Building the Latin American Art Collection,"shows just how much the MFAH has become a gateway to Latin American culture. The exhibition of more than 80 works from South and Central America also demonstrates the MFAH's aggressive buildup of its collection of works from south of the border. Art from every medium is included, but the show's clear highlight is the massive installation La Ciudad Hidroespacial (The Hydrospatial City), by Argentinean artist Gyula Kosice, which offers a utopian vision of the future. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 12:15 to 7 p.m. Sundays.
