Artist James Turrell got to know Peter C. Marzio, the longtime director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, who died Dec. 9, while working with him on various projects. They include Turrell’s permanent installation The Light Inside in the underground tunnel that connects the MFAH’s Law and Beck buildings, the recent acquisition of 12 of his works dating from the mid-1960s to the present and an upcoming retrospective. The Turrell survey is scheduled to open in 2012 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York before traveling to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the MFAH and other venues.
