    Rothko Chapel

    Rothko Chapel is a tranquil sanctuary open to all faiths nestled in the heart of Houston. The walls of the chapel display many of Mark Rothko's abstract and minimalist paintings. However the interior of the chapel is not decorated with any religious icons which allows for a very inviting atmosphere. The courtyard just outside the chapel doors is the site of one of the most inspiring sculptures in Houston; a giant inverted broken obelisk balanced atop a pyramid at the end of a reflecting pool. Both inside and out Rothko Chapel is a place of deep reflection, meaning and acceptance.
