American Made: 250 Years of American Art

American Made: 250 Years of American Art reveals the depth, breadth, and richness of American artistic innovation from the 18th to the mid-20th century. For the first time in MFAH history, the museum galleries present an installation that integrates the collection of American paintings and sculpture with decorative arts, Native American art, photography, and works on paper. More than 200 objects are showcased, including artworks from the collections of the two MFAH house museums: Bayou Bend and Rienzi.

Let's gather by the bench near the Gift Shop entrance inside the Beck Building (look for the green tiara). There are several buildings associated with the museum. Please be sure that you are in the Beck Building.

General admission is free on Thursdays.

Free parking is available in four surface lots north of the Law Building. Two are along Main Street: one at Bissonnet, one at Oakdale; and two are off Montrose Boulevard: one at the Glassell Studio School and one at the Glassell Junior School.

Garage parking is available for $6.00 with proof of museum admission. The entrance is on Binz, marked by a large, yellow arrow.
