The Art League of Houston named him Texas Art Patron of the Year in 2002.

However Lester’s home holds some secrets. Secrets that are wild, whimsical and weird. And he will be opening his home and his private art collection for RedLine's 2019 Patron Trip. You will not want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see the architectural wonder of the Mark's Residence and a breathtaking collection of modern and contemporary art.
