Art talk and tour of the Lester Marks Collection, courtesy of LCM Partners, Ltd.Program events
On Wednesday, January 11, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Visual Arts Alliance will hold an art talk and tour of the Lester Marks Collection, courtesy of LCM Partners, Ltd. at 2808 Rice Boulevard, Houston. Lester Marks, President of LCM Partners, Ltd., and a represented artist himself, has been collecting contemporary art for 25 years. He has served as a trustee for both the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, among others.
Mr. Marks has been included in Art News as one of the top 200 collectors in the world, and in Art & Antiques as one of the top 100 “collectors making a difference” in the art world. Most recently, American Art Collector featured the collection in the Winter 2016 issue of Iris Covet Book.
The home of Lester Marks is a “mini-museum” of contemporary art. The home is built around an outdoor courtyard displaying the stone sculpture of the British environmental artist Richard Long. There are passageways to three small gallery spaces, a studio, and even a “subterranean playroom” for the adventurous. The collection features museum-quality works from internationally renowned artists as well works by hundreds of regional and Houston-area artists.
Space is limited to 45 people. Email Programs@VisualArtsAlliance.org to reserve space.
