"A House for..." exhibit

I urge you to visit the Fort Worth Center for Architecture (CfA) to view the current exhibit titled "A House for...". The pieces, in a uniform 11 x 14 format addressing the theme, are contributed by AIAFW members and range from photos to whimsical paintings. In addition, there are "guest" pieces: a beautiful signed original sketch by Renzo Piano showing his Kimbell Museum addition, a signed limited edition print by the late Ricardo Legorreta, and a book of photographs of Kahn's Dhakha complex by photographer Raymond Meier, signed by both the photographer and Nathaniel Kahn (who also provided a signed DVD copy of "My Architect"). All of the work is available for purchase via a silent auction, which will end at the Closing Reception on Monday April 30th from 6-9pm. All proceeds benefit the CfA (a non-profit, so you also get a nice deduction). Above is my entry- "A House for Luna (with a view)".
