My husband and I stopped by Rothko this past weekend and I thought I would round out the photo coverage with some exterior shots. Interior photography is not allowed, so I did not bring a good camera, but here are a few cell phone shots.
|The "broken obelisk" sculpture, |
which is dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr.
I am not able to identify the wonderful bamboo species used for the hedge. It looks a bit like b. malingensis, but given the age of the hedge, I'm not sure that cultivar would have been available in our area at the time it was planted.
|Looking back toward the entrance to the Chapel.|
|I was amazed at these crazy-looking flowering vines growing near the nearby Chapel administrative building. I hadn't seen these before in Houston, but they are purple passion flowers, and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has a write-up on them.|
