After brunch today, we went to the Cherryhurst House in Houston for its current in-house exhibit by Dan Havel and Dean Ruck. It is called “Ripple”, and it is wonderful. I spoke with Dean Ruck while inside the exhibit/house (you’ll see what I mean in a minute), and learned a bit about how his day job provides him ample knowledge on how to take on such a task safely and successfully. When I first entered the house, I felt instantly that it was just like the vortex-y black-hole-sucking-itself-inward house I had seen years and years ago on Montrose Boulevard in Houston, though also totally different. (Obviously, that was my own description of it. The project was apparently called “Inversion”. Very appropriately named, of course.) I found out that, of course, the same artists had done that project as well as this one.
Anyway, the one today, Ripple, was great. Go. See. It. !!!!
And there was even real quiche to enjoy as part of the opening celebration of the exhibit, which, alongside the perfect-volumed music and delicious beverages, made really quite stupendous slightly rainy afternoon.
How’d you like to walk in to this through the front door of a house?
(Well, you can right now! Go check it out with an easy reservation at Cherryhurst House. Seriously. It’s well worth the visit.)
A few views within the house, though the bottom left is a photo I took through a hole in the wall, while standing outside the house.
P.S. I guess it was all the woodwork we had seen, but my mom and I called up my cousin (as she followed us in her own car) on the way home from the exhibit, so she could participate on speaker phone with our sing-a-long to “Heaven on Their Minds” from Jesus Christ Superstar. He specifically references Jesus’s possible future of being a carpenter, the point at saying which is one of the best parts of the song musically.
