"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 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.
