Public Art of the University of Houston System Featured Artwork:
Euphonia, 1997, in Honor of the artist Frank Stella

Frank Stella

1936 - 2024

“It really makes the space. Frank was totally right about that,” said Beth Robertson, former UH System Regent and philanthropist, who was a friend of Stella…This immersive artwork took months to complete. Robertson said the community involvement with “Euphonia” brought Stella real satisfaction—that it was created to be experienced and shared.”
