An ad in last week’s New Yorker (the Travel issue) noted that Texas contained more art than The Louvre. Well, duh! At about 550,000 square feet, the Louvre is an impressive 2% of a square mile. Even with considerable offsite storage, it doesn’t rival the 268,601 square miles that comprise Texas. There are plenty of reasons to visit Texas (and some reasons not to), but its art density is definitely not a particular highlight.
