Updated 8:59 am, Thursday, March 29, 2018 HOUSTON (AP) — Anish Kapoor's shiny, stainless steel "Cloud Column" sculpture looks like an object in a sci-fi film, descended from space. The Houston Chronicle reports no aliens emerged from the monumental artwork, but a small army of installers, construction crew and museum staff hovered nearby Monday and Tuesday as the 21,000-pound artwork starred in a heavyweight ballet of an installation on the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston campus. Although meetings happened weeks earlier, the finale began late Sunday night, when crews spent four or five hours just assembling the 625-ton crane that would hoist the crated sculpture over a corner of the new Glassell School of Art building. That crane arrived in eight trucks. Such equipment has to be put together on site because it's too massive to be "street legal," explained Winston Hesch, of McCarthy, the builder for the museum's ongoing campus expansion.

Consider this another tradition unlike any other. Two or three or more of the best players win tournaments in the months leading to April, golf fans hear the familiar, soothing notes of "Augusta" in TV spots and declare that this is shaping up to be the best Masters of them all. No doubt, there has been enough happen in 12 weeks to start counting the days. Dustin Johnson started the year with an eight-shot victory that featured a 432½-yard drive on a 433-yard hole. He remains at No. 1 in the world. Two players have had a mathematical chance to replace him, most recently Justin Thomas, who was one match away. Phil Mickelson, a three-time Masters champion, won a World Golf Championship for his first victory in nearly five years.
