Believe it or not, I found this ad for Celanese on ebay when I searched for “Rice Institute.” It took me a minute to see why it came up:
I don’t know the date, the magazine, or anything else but I find the combination of Magritte and Celanese enchanting.
Incidentally, Celanese has a pretty good historical timeline that might appeal to those of you who like this sort of thing. They’ve been into a lot of stuff over the years. It’s at this link.
Bonus: I’m out of town for a meeting today but several people sent pictures of a beautiful rainbow that appeared over campus this morning. The best one came from reader Kat Kosted, who took it from the 6th floor of the Cambridge Office Building. Thanks!
Also, I have a travel day tomorrow and might not be back here until Wednesday. Don’t panic.
Would that there were a pot of gold in Rice Stadium!
Indeed! Nice use of the subjunctive mood, by the way.
Actually, the end of the rainbow appears to be in Reckling Park.
There was a Magritte exhibit at the Rice Museum while I was there. A bit of searching found the catalog. “Published on the occasion of the exhibition from Rice University Institute for the Arts, Houston TX October 1, 1976-January 2, 1977.”
The ad ran in (among other places, I’m sure) Scientific American May 1969 issue on p. 11 and Sept. 1969 p. 91.
