suspended dragon sculpture will hold court above a drop- off atrium for schoolchildren. Internationally exhibited former MFAH Glassell Core Fellow Trenton Doyle Hancock, based in Houston, contributes a tapestry woven in collaboration with the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. At 10 by 22 feet, it's a punctuation point of the Kinder restaurant (concept, chef, and name yet to be revealed). At the principal entrance, Spanish installation artist Cristina Iglesias has been tapped to create a water element activated by a cast- bronze topographical form that will alternately be submerged then drained, mimicking the effects of a tidal pool. Three sculptures by Korean master Byung Hoon Choi, best known for melding design and art, will greet visitors at an adjacent entrance. Formed from unpolished Indonesian basalt, the torqued trio evoke the Asian tradition of scholar's stones. Finally, the African continent is represented by a work at the gateway to the Kinder Building's Cruz-Diez tunnel. Ghana-born, Nigeria-based El Anatsui's metallic tapestry formed from found objects, including wrappers salvaged from liquor bottles, will hang from the ceiling like a grand pennant to globalism. Tinterow Weighs In MFAH director and Margaret Alkek Williams chair Gary Tinterow says of the coming Kinder: "For some eight years now, through our campus plan, we have been stepping up in every way to match the growth, diversity, and dynamism of our city. When we open the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building in Fall 2020, we hope to welcome the entire world to an expansive, beautifully designed complex of buildings and urban gardens, revealing the previously unsuspected riches of an international collection we could never before exhibit in such range and depth."
