Rothko's Psychosis rubs off on the staff! 9/30/2010

Rothko is supposed to be a spiritual experience, but you wouldn't know it by their staff. After hearing all the hype about Rothko, my wife and I decided to visit for our anniversary. There were a couple of families visiting, one with noisy children. One of the matrons grabbed my wife by the arm and demanded that she ""get these children under control"". When she tried to explain that we don't have children, the matron called my wife a liar! I certainly didn't expect my wife to be accosted by the staff! more

Meh... 7/26/2006

I stopped by the Rothko Chapel after hearing all the good things about it. What everyone says is true - yes, it's very austere, but it's also very calming and meditative. It took me awhile to realize that the painted panels were actually abstract works of art with very subtle color distinctions, but once I did I was mesmerized by them. Pros: Zen-like atmosphere open to the public... Cons: ...as long as you're willing to be monitored closely as you stand around awkwardly. more

Free spirituality 8/24/2005

The Rothko Chapel is not a museum, nor should it be mistaken for one. It is, as its name clearly states, a chapel. It is a haven for people of all creeds, religious or otherwise. It is one of the few holy sites in Houston, so it should be appreciated as such. more

Rothko Fiasco 10/12/2004

If this is the best that Houston has to offer then shame on our fair city. This was a run-down, outdated, empty space with nothing but black panels on 8 walls. I can make more color and interest by shutting my eyes as tight as I can until spots appear before them as I did as a young child when told to take a nap when I was not sleepy. I am a huge fan of the arts, especially opera and thought that this would be a good way to spend my Columbus Day holiday from work. I should have stayed at home in bed with the covers over my head! Pros: nice weather, free Cons: , psuedo-structure, embarrassment more
