The Menil Collection in Houston has received a gift of 110 drawings by such artists as Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock, Eva Hesse, and Robert Rauschenberg. The works will be exhibited in the forthcoming Drawing Institute—a free-standing building on the museum’s campus dedicated to modern and contemporary drawings. The sizeable donation was made by two of the Menil’s trustees—Janie C. Lee and Louisa Stude Sarofim.
