Dear Art Educators,

Some of you were looking for South American artists a while back.....

"Hélio Oiticica: The Body of Color" is on view through April 1 at the
Museum of Fine Arts, 1001 Bissonnet Street, Houston.
New York times review of exhibit - included slide show
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/17/arts/design/17oiti.html?th&emc=th
"...'Hélio Oiticica: The Body of Color,' an exhilarating survey that
emphasizes the earlier, lesser-known stages of this artist's career —
a rapid progression from abstract paintings to painted reliefs and
objects to performance props and interactive installation art — which
was fueled by a passion for color as theoretical as it was obsessive."

Museum of Fine Arts Houston - includes an online presentation on conservation.
