Rothko Chapel Free Admission Wednesday

Free Admission Wednesday from 10am to 6pm at Rothko Chapel - see INFO below. The Rothko Chapel is a non-denominational chapel in Houston, Texas, founded by John and Dominique de Menil. The interior serves not only as a chapel but also as a major work of modern art: on its walls are fourteen paintings by Mark Rothko in varying hues of black. The shape of the buildingan octagon inscribed in a Greek crossand the design of the chapel were largely influenced by the artist. The chapel sits two miles southwest of downtown in the Montrose neighborhood, situated between the building housing the Menil Collection and the Chapel of Saint Basil on the campus of the University of Saint Thomas. About 110,000 people visit the chapel each year. Susan J. Barnes states "The Rothko Chapel ... became the world's first broadly ecumenical center, a holy place open to all religions and belonging to none. It became a center for international cultural, religious, and philosophical exchanges, for colloquia and performances. And it became a place of private prayer for individuals of all faiths".
