He died last night; he was 94.

UPDATE: Listen to Jerome’s KERA radio story.

Crow will mostly be hailed for his millions and his vast real estate deals, which shaped this city. But in the arts, he’ll be known for his small but exquisite addition to the Arts District: The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art.

The vast assemblage of more than 4,000 pieces was originally held at the Crow family ranch and their various homes, while over the years, individual pieces adorned the Wyndham Anatole Hotel. Trammell and Margaret Crow had been collecting since the mid-’60s and first visited China in 1976 — the first of 14 visits. Some works hadn’t even been uncrated, notably the magnificent sandstone Mughal Wall, when Trammell’s son, Trammell S. Crow, was appointed by the family foundation to create the museum — in the outbuildngs of the Trammell Crow Center tower.

The free-admission museum opened in 1998, featuring pieces from China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia from 3500 B.C. to early 20th century.
