When the Australian mining company, BHP announced their plans to construct a 600,000 square foot sky scraper designed by Pickard Chilton of New Haven, Connecticut along the bustling Post Oak Boulevard in Houston, Kinzelman Art was honored to be selected to place a prominent work of art within the refined lobby. On behalf of BHP and in partnership with Gensler, KAC led the process of selecting New York based artist, Sharon Louden, represented by Morgan Lehman Gallery to create a site-specific sculpture suspended from the 30 foot high lobby ceiling.
Louden's site-specific installation
Louden's ongoing exploration of compelling materials such as large swaths of mirror-polished aluminum set the stage for a dynamic, yet refined installation. The cascading sculpture creates a fluid composition that one could relate to the mining industry and natural geological formations. Among the multi-faceted aspects of the overall work of art is its ability to physically reflect the surrounding environment and changing light as well as the movement of pedestrians below.

Hughes Landing Project
Recognized by the Houston Business Journal as the 2016 recipient of the Landmark Award in mixed-use development, Hughes Landing is a 66-acre master planned community located in The Woodlands that features numerous works of public art throughout. Continuing the collecting philosophy of The Woodlands, Hughes Landing retained Kinzelman Art Consulting to procure and commission several public works of art for select locations to further enhance the community.
Yvonne Domenge, Wind Waves
We were thrilled to add to the magnetism of Hughes Landing via the placement of invigorating works of art by such artists as Mexico City based Yvonne Domenge, and Washington State artist Julie Speidel. We find that the overall success is seeing these public works of art serve to unify the community through an artful experience.
KAC asked Curator of The Menil Collection, Michelle White for an inside look into her daily life and points of inspiration. See what this Houston art community power house has to say.
Inside of The Menil Collection
KAC got an exclusive look at our newest neighbor, Capsule Gallery. True to it's name, the tucked away space on Main Street is quaint yet open and full of fresh and innovative ideas.
We had the pleasure of chatting with Capsule's owner and director, Sarah Sudhoff. Sarah's dynamic background reflects the gallery's whimsical and refined array of works. The innovative progarm combines contemporary photography and craft, representing emerging to established artists.
Capsule Gallery kicked off the summer with exhibition, Fibers of Design, featuring three craft artists, Amada Miller, Meghan Shimek, and Delaney Smith, who work in various textured mediums.
Garbriel Orozco at the Jumex Collection
After our recent visit to Mexico City, it is clear that the city’s burgeoning art scene lives up to its hype. After being introduced to several impressive Mexico City galleries at the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, we were excited to explore what else the city had to offer. During our stay, we managed to visit multiple museums and galleries, an artist’s studio, and two art fairs, Zona Maco and Material. Every experience left us continually impressed by the fresh perspective within this growing arts community. Below are a few of our favorite works from the weekend.
