Ceiling Mural With Portraits by Russell Erwin

    This mural titled Sisters was painted directly on the vaulted ceiling of the Rice Lofts' Foyer.  Six ceiling murals in the Foyer, each measuring approximately 5' x 7', and two  7' x 50' murals on canvas for the Crystal Ballroom, were completed and installed in the Summer of 1998. The mural shown here is loosely based on Waterhouse's Nymphs Finding the Head of Orpheus and includes the facial portraits of Rice Developer Randall Davis' daughters.   See Press Clippings for more details about Erwin's contribution to the renovation of the historic Rice Hotel into the new Rice Lofts in downtown Houston.
