A History of Excellence in Art

ABOUT OUR COLLECTIONS

Dr. John Biggers, world-renowned artist, established the Art Department at Texas Southern University in 1949.

One of his major goals for the University was to develop a collection of traditional African Art. Such a collection would enable the students at Texas Southern to develop a "perceptional growth" and cultural sensitivity to African Art.

Through Dr. Biggers's initiative, the University has developed several collections that spark educational curiosity and artistic inspiration.
