$5,000 toward A Pioneer Modernist: Dorothy Hood, an exhibition on the painter with accompanying catalogue and related programs, organized by director William G. Otton. Before settling in Houston, Texas in 1962, Hood studied on the East Coast and lived in Mexico. Considered by some to be one of the first leaders of modernist abstraction in Texas, Hood used both poured paint and collage to create work that references inner and outer space through its use of religious imagery and iconography from America’s space program.
