Completed in 2013, the new pavilion is composed of two parts, a front wing which accommodates the entrance lobby and two exhibition galleries, and a rear wing housing a third gallery, the auditorium, and an educational facility; the two parts are connected to one another by two glazed passageways.The new building is mostly made in concrete, timber, metal, and glass – with square concrete columns which support timber beams, and a “smart roof”, similar to others designed by Piano, which provides natural lighting to the exhibition galleries through a system composed of glass panels, stretched fabric, and adjustable aluminum louvers.The European section is particular noteworthy, it includes masterpieces by Duccio da Buoninsegna, Fra Angelico, Titian, Giovanni Bellini, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Parmigianino, Caravaggio, Annibale Carracci, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Canaletto, Bernini, Tiepolo, Canova, El Greco, Poussin, Velázquez, Rubens, Rembrandt van Rijn, Goya, Corot, Monet, Pissarro, Cézanne, Gauguin, Braque, Munch, Picasso, Miró, Mondrian, Matisse, and Henry Moore, among others.
By episode’s end, the eyesores become elegant living spaces that are sold at auction for sweet profits. Gary’s Girls were introduced on the show when Donna Snow and Toni Snow had an extra house to work on. The movers/designers/flippers go to places throughout the area — Keller, Mansfield, Roanoke, Lake Worth, Colleyville, Haslet, Weatherford — anywhere that new neighborhoods, businesses and highways are being built while older structures are being disposed of, often winding up in landfills.Art Collection The permanent collection of the Kimbell Art Museum is intentionally not very large – it comprises about 350 artworks, mostly paintings, sculptures, and objects of decorative arts, dating from the 3rd millenium B. to the mid-20th century – yet, all its pieces are of the highest quality and artistic relevance.The collection encompasses five thematic areas: Antiquities, European Art, Asian Art, Precolumbian Art, and African and Oceanic Art.Friday, Hester has become a full-on series regular. In the show, they and three other teams of friendly rivals go to communities all around the Fort Worth area, where building is booming, and they buy old and unwanted houses for pennies on the dollar.Actually, the show could be called “Texas Move N Flip,” because that’s the sequence in which it happens.
