The University Museum at Texas Southern presents Collectors’ Legacy: Selections from the Sandra & Lloyd Baccus Collection. This exhibition features 68 out of the 280 works from the estate of the late Lloyd and Sandra Baccus. Collectors Legacy is organized by the David C. Driskell Center for the Study of the Visual Arts and Culture of African Americans and the African Diaspora at the University of Maryland, College Park. The exhibition was curated by David C. Driskell. This exhibition is supported, in part, by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council and by a generous donation from Mrs. Ada Anderson. Local support is provided by the Reginald Van Lee Foundation, Tina Knowles, Atwood Oceanics and Millennium Builders 2016.
Mrs. Sandra Baccus served on the advisory board of the David C. Driskell Center at the University of Maryland from 2004-2006. She made a commitment to donate the collection in order to preserve the history presented by prominent artists of African decent, ensuring that future generations be educated about the rich contributions made in the field of visual art. It is the first exhibition solely curated by Professor Driskell since the opening of the center in 2001. It is designed to celebrate and explore the narrative and legacy of the African American and African Diaspora experience in the United States over the past century. Works by Charles Alston, Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, and Betye Saar; are just a few of the varied selections of media, sculpture, painting, photography, drawing and print works included in this exhibition. Collectors’ Legacy will be on view at the University Museum from Friday, March 11th until Sunday, April 24th.
