    Annual MLK Birthday Celebration: "Monumental Decisions: Art, Politics, and Social Responsibility"
    In honor of the life and work of the Rev. Dr. King, the Chapel held a lecture and conversation exploring the power of symbols in our society today. Symbols hold power in our society. Flags, monuments, memorials...what story do they tell? Whose story do they tell?

Discover feng shui with a practical and straightforward method you can begin to utilize in your home or office right after leaving this lecture! In Eastern cultures, an understanding of the interaction between human and environmental life-force energy, or Qi, is vital to promote well-being and prosperity. For millennia, the practice of feng shui has been a fundamental instrument used to promote this integration. Unfortunately, in modern times, misinformation about the true principles of feng shui have led many to find the practice intimidating and confusing.

“These children have ideas, often fine ones, and they express them vividly and beautifully, so that they make us feel what they feel,” he writes. “Hence their efforts are intrinsically works of art.” - Mark Rothko

    How to Teach Art to Kids, According to Mark Rothko
    If you've ever seen Mark Rothko's paintings-large canvases filled with fields of atmospheric color-and thought, "a child could do this," you've paid the Abstract Expressionist a compliment. Rothko greatly admired children's art, praising the freshness, authenticity, and emotional intensity of their creations.

    Houston, unlike other major cities in the United States, doesn't really have an iconic spot for out-of-town visitors. Sure, there's NASA and its rather disappointing tour.
