Friday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 15 Jun 2012 8:00 AM

Today in the roundup: Renzo Piano is sad about the Nasher, FW Weekly Music Awards lineup and a notable death.


AN ANNOYED ARCHITECT: A solution has yet to be found in the Nasher Sculpture Center/Museum Tower situation. And that’s got Nasher architect Renzo Piano – who visited his creation on Wednesday – upset. “I am very, very, very, very sad. Fifty percent for me and 50 percent for Ray Nasher,” he tells “He was so proud of his museum, which was all about affection and passion. Ray was not born in Dallas, but he fell in love with Dallas. So how can you kill something like that? That’s why I’m terribly sad about all of this.”

FWW MUSIC AWARDS LINEUP: The lineup has been announced for this year’s Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards. Nearly 50 bands will play eight venues along the W. 7th Street corridor next Sunday. Among the headliners are Burning Hotels, Telegraph Canyon and Quaker City Night Hawks. The full lineup for each venue is posted at

A NOTABLE DEATH: Dallas artist John Wilcox has died, according to Wilcox lived in New York but showed his work locally at Barry Whistler Gallery. He talks about his life and work in a video posted on the site.
