Just attended Houston Livestock And Rodeo. We were on top level. WHere walking shoes. The incline is easier than stairs, but very challenging for elderly or handicapped. Food and drinks were very expensive. $8.95 per beer!

Loved walking in this space. Very peaceful, cool and inviting. Would .love to go back in summer. Most of displays seemed very modern and were well spaced, allowing you to move around them and enjoy all facets.

Unique and well placed sculpture of various sizes, styles and shapes, and metals. One of the surprising pieces was one that looked like a ivy type that appeared dry (dusk in December) and was actually the metal art dropped over a low wall.

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is an attractive sanctuary. They have an impressive collection of world class sculpture in a wonderfully landscaped space. It is across the street from the MFA. Great place to eat a bag lunch away from the hustle and bustle.
