The Art History of Houston

Robert Boyd

There is apparently a catalog of the CAMH No Zoning show coming out (note to self: must get), and included in it is a chronology of Houston's art history since 1930. But, as the Chron tells us:

It includes an invaluable chronology of the Houston art scene's history since 1930 by Caroline Huber and the Art Guys.

I would love to see a chronological history of Houston art and artists. (I wouldn't mind seeing the same for music and literature, too!)

Update: The Wikipedia page is now up, but with lots of caveats:
