It was a monumental task. Looking at work by 549 artists within 100 miles of Lawndale Art Center and deciding who’s in for “The Big Show 2017” would draw beads of sweat on most people. But Toby Kamps, formerly of The Menil Collection and about to step into new shoes at the Blaffer Art Museum, took it all in stride and curated the 200 pieces.
“He brought an enthusiasm to this opportunity that was pretty contagious,” says Stephanie Mitchell, executive director. “Toby [wanted] to inspire across the spectrum and take the temperature of what Houston is making now.”
Come feel the energy as $3,000 is awarded for works created this past year under Kamps’s theme of “The Rate of Change.”
