Living in the Suburbs
The Museum of Fine Arts Houston has a new exhibit that my fellow design and architecture lovers will not want to miss: Always Greener: Seeing and Seeking Suburbia - Selections from the Museum’s Collection.
A tagline from the museum’s exhibition description encapsulates why I'm captivated by the subject matter “Suburbia’s grass may not always be greener, but it provides fertile ground for artistic exploration."
Anything to do with our ideas of what home is, and how those ideas shape us psychologically is naturally of huge interest to me, so to see how artists interpret the nature of suburbs (home for about half of all Americans) isn’t to be missed.
“Always Greener” runs through February 3rd at MFAH, and please let me know what you think of this fascinating exhibition if you visit.
