Owner description: A small chapel featuring Byzantine frescoes of religious images.

Before the museum was closed to return these gifts os our past, I went
to see them one last time. No other museum in Harris County could touch the beauty and chaaracter of these early frescos of earlier centuries of the Mediterrean cultures. The Menil preserved them for all generations to see and enjoy. Someday maybe they will be seen in this area again.

On the University of St Thomas campus, the chapel is definitely a place for those who want to see something that is both sublime and spectacular. Can be viewed as a church or a work of art. Not large but what is well done has been done well.

I really like the lighting of this exhibit it draws a lot of attention to the Frescos and makes the room peaceful

This is walking distance from the Rothko chapel and Menil collection, and is a beautiful little gem of a building. Historical Byzantine mosaics from a chapel in Cyprus, this is a rare treat to see in this part of the world. Fantastically set in a modern building, with great lighting and atmosphere.
