Members Exclusive Access “Ernesto Neto: SunForceOceanLife”

SOLD OUT On two special Mondays, July 26 and August 23, MFAH members have exclusive access to Ernesto Neto: SunForceOceanLife when the Museum is closed to the public. This popular immersive installation, created specifically for the MFAH by renowned Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto, transforms Cullinan Hall into a suspended walkway. Step up into the epic, hand-woven sculpture to explore the complex labyrinth of interactive pathways. The nature of this installation allows for only a limited number of visitors at one time, so members are strongly encouraged to reserve tickets in advance.
