Locating Houston's Museum for Missing Places

Byeric leshinsky

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Houston, Texas, has a fleet of internationally-renowned museums that exist as fortified reliquaries, largely immune from the turbulence that dictates the rest of Houston's built landscape. What Houston does not have is a museum that, in its methods of gathering, ordering and exhibiting information, actually mirrors the culture of rapid change that defines Houston as a city. Should a museum of this nature exist in Houston? Could it exist? What information about the city would be exhibited? This is the premise of the Museum for Missing Places. From August 2005 through February 2006, the Museum served as a short-term experimental institution in Houston, Texas, designed to initiate dialogues about the city's less-acknowledged public places and provide a platform for commentary about the city's established museum culture.
