No Zoning Facebook Comments

The CAMH posted the following on Facebook:
Thanks to everyone who came out for the closing of "No Zoning." It was a great evening. The 88 piece prize-winning Ortiz Middle School marching band acted as honor guard as part of Mel Chin’s "Fundred Dollar Bill Project" (2008-20...10).

Sea shanties were sung to celebrate the hull turning of Zach Moser and Benjy Mason’s Yacht Shop project, which the artists have been constructing inside the Museum over the course of the exhibition.

Ritchie Hubscher performed a (impressive!) dance with the house beam from his home on Mary Ellen Carroll's table stage while Jim Pirtle sung “Our House,” accompanied by Loreta Kovacic on piano.

Artists were on hand to sign copies of the newly released catalogue, "No Zoning: Artists Engage Houston," which includes comprehensive information on the featured artists and works.

And so ends an exhibition inspired by the city itself. 

And Dan Havel (half of the team Havel Ruck Projects who did "Give and Take", the giant ovoid carved out of a condemned house) replied: "Sorry I missed it. We should have carried our piece out the back door with the help of the crowd, so everyone could throw it in the dumpster." 

So much for ars longa vita brevis!
