Art complex

John and Dominique de Menil, founders of The Menil Collection, were key figures in Houston’s developing cultural life during the 1950s and 1960s. The Menil Collection was opened to the public by Dominique, in 1987, and features 16,000 works dating from the Paleolithic era to the present day.

The Menil Collection includes four areas: Antiquity, Byzantine and Medieval, Tribal, and Twentieth-Century Art (with a concentration in Surrealism). Aside the main Menil Collection, there are a few other art buildings in the campus, including the Cy Twombly Gallery and Richmond Hall.
