Abstract:

The Subject Files document Dr. Marzio's leadership of the MFAH, his participation in several national arts organizations, as well as a general interest in Houston and the arts. Files are divided by decade. The first 31 boxes contain files from the 1980s, while boxes 31-34 contain files from the 1990s. In addition, subseries files document the design and construction of the Cullen Sculpture Garden in the mid-80s as well as museum expansion that includes the addition of the Central Administration and Glassell Junior School of Art building; the renovation of the Alfred C. Glassell, Jr. (Adult) School of Art; and plans for the Audrey Jones Beck building during the 1990s.

Subjects of note in the 1980s include: The American Association of Museums (AAM); Dr. Marzio's extensive involvement with the Association of Art Museum Directors; Expansion notes; the Glassell Gold Collection; the Glassell School of Art; Long Range Plan; the Masterpiece Book (A permanent legacy : 150 works from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston); the National Endowment for the Arts (1983 - 1989); notes, contracts and legal documents on the various properties purchased or under consideration during this period; and the Ruth K. Shartle Symposium (1984 - 1989).

Subjects from the 1990s include: The Association of Art Museum Directors, Blaffer Foundation, the Dubuffet restoration, The Economic Summit of Industrial Nations, the Minority Internship Program, NEA Challenge Grant III, and the historic San Sabá painting, lent to the MFAH for display and safekeeping during a U.S. Customs case.

Subseries 6.1: Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden contains correspondence, notes and contracts leading up to and after the opening of the garden in 1986. This includes interviews and press packets, news clippings, parking agreements with First Presbyterian Church, plan lists, sculpture considered and purchased, drawings and photos and a statement of purpose.

Subseries 6.2: Master Plan contains information on the museum expansion in the 1990s. Files include information on candidates for architect for the Beck building, internal discussion on space allocation and other needs, and files on the involvement of Hines Interest, Rafael Moneo (architect), and Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates. Information is also included on plans and construction for the Montrose administration building, Glassell and the Junior School. Long-range plan and master plan documents give insight into the reasons for expansion and goals for the future of the MFAH.
