The wait is now over …. Spring Texas has its first Fine Arts Museum. The efforts of Clara Lewis and Rev. Glenn Wilkerson which started thirteen years ago have finally become a reality with the opening of the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts. The only Fine Arts Museum in the Houston TX area that is outside the Houston Museum district.
The museum came about its name in 2006 when The Fincher Family Trust made a major donation to the Museum of Fine Arts, Cypress Creek in honor of their mother, Pearl. The museum is a smaller scale version of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts is an independent facility from MFAH but they have a strategic cooperative relationship which is certain to benefit the residents of Spring Texas.
Its first exhibition will feature the collection titled, Frederic Remington and The American West: Selections from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The exhibition is part of MFAH’s community outreach program.The museum is a wonderful complement to the Barbara Bush Library, the Cypress Creek Community Center, and The Centrum perfomance hall. All located in the Cypress Creek Cultural District.
