The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Features Jennifer Steinkamp’s “Mike Kelley”

By Mimi Amaral Since the early 1900s the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) has been devoted to the procurement of arts, sciences and cultural amenities displayed within historical architectural galleries, cultural centers and community organizations. The original building, designed in 1924 by William Ward Watkin, was the first art museum to be built in the state of Texas. Furthermore, on February 2, 2012 it was announced that Steven Holl Architects will be developing an expansion to enlarge the museum’s ability to display exhibitions, collections and educational programs. A few exhibitions currently on display are: Egyptomania open until August 5; Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London showcases 48 masterpieces from the collection known as the Iveagh Bequest open until Sep 3, 2012; Modern and Contemporary Masterworks from Malba – Fundación Costantini open until August 5; and Jennifer Steinkamp’s “Mike Kelley” open until September 3. “Mike Kelley” is an exhibit by Jennifer Steinkamp that brings a huge draw because of its 3D digital animation and the way her work embraces light. “Mike Kelley,” an animated tree, evolves through four seasons by cycling from a warm spring day with pink flowers into a bright, warm, summer’s day with the illumination of delicate green leaves while moving toward the incandescence of autumn before it enters a winter’s storm leaving the tree bare and baron.
