Houston's premier downtown private dining venue, The Petroleum Club, is moving to a new location, and we are excited to be working with them to commission artwork that is a reflection of their history, their mission, and their new space. The four artists selected, Troy DugasJoshua Goss, Reinhard Ziegler, and Nancy Lorenz are hard at work on their commissions, and we wanted to share some images of their progress. See the completed works on our blog or find them at The Club in early 2015.
