"There is no ‘correct’ way to view art. The artist can suggest ideal viewing conditions and control lighting all he or she wants, but ultimately what you see is what you see...Your senses are gently tuned through sight and silence, allowing you to focus. On what or on who, is ultimately up to you. That, in itself, is sacred." - Alison Caldwell Bliss, Collections and Curators.

    "The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions...the people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them. And if you say you are moved only by their color relationships then you miss the point."

The Rothko Chapel is horrified by what is happening at the borders of our own state, where parents are fleeing the violence and poverty of their countries only to have their vulnerable children taken from their arms, separated from them, and then potentially becoming lost to the system. We stand in opposition to the zero tolerance policy and in solidarity with the families, lawyers and organizations on the front lines of this tragedy.

    'They just took them?' Frantic parents separated from their kids fill courts on the border
    The words "all rise" were still ringing in the brightly lit South Texas courtroom last week when Peter E. Ormsby slipped unceremoniously into his seat. "Good morning," the 62-year-old federal magistrate said as the courtroom filled with the clanking of shackled defendants returning to their wooden benches.

Want another opportunity to walk a #labyrinth this summer in Houston? Join us for the Summer Solstice Sunrise Observance on June 21 as we celebrate the beginning of the longest day of the year with a meditative labyrinth walk on the Chapel plaza led by none other than Jay Stailey, Chapel Guild member and Houston labyrinth expert!

    In Houston's labyrinths, pilgrims find a connection to the ancient and to themselves
    On a corner of Freedmen's Town, on the holy ground where Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church once stood, are circles of crushed granite and worn brick. They spiral past four benches studded with colorful mosaics and into a rosette-shaped center where a stone reads: "To God be the glory."

    These Beautiful Chapels Around the World Are Literal Works of Art
    Striking, meditative and often moving - experiencing art in a chapel is different from doing so in a museum or gallery.
