Let's play a quick word association game. I say "Houston," and you say, "(Fill in the blank). " You probably did not answer "quirky. " "Astrodome," maybe, or "humid," or "We've got a problem. " All solid, serious words that evoke the opposite of quirk. But there's probably more quirk than you'd think. America's fourth-largest city (population 2.2 million) may not be a Berkeley, Austin or ? pardon me, ? L.A., but Houston has a passel of offbeat art sites. They're also off-the-beaten-path art sites (Houston's sprawl can make L.A. feel like Manhattan)

"Eames in Name and in Spirit" (by Susan Freudenheim, July 16) was a well-written and informative article about Charles and Ray Eames and their heirs. However, I beg to differ regarding your placing it under the heading "art." The story is about design and designers. Giving it the heading of "art" further confuses those who can't tell the difference between design and art, and misleads the young who are trying to decide on or developing a career. Art is subjective, whimsical and answers to no one but the artist.
