Graduating Seniors Exhibition 2017
The University Museum presents its annual exhibition of graduating seniors at the Midtown Art Gallery located at 3414 La Branch. This year the gallery is focused on the work of seven innovative emerging artists: Derrick Brown, Quenton Byers, Frederica Grant, Charles Howard, Larry McCoy, Bradley Ward, and Miles Watson. The exhibition features over 50 works of art representing a range of styles and mediums, including drawing, painting, sculpture, digital art, and photography. The tradition of the Graduating Seniors Exhibition celebrates the legacy of the excellence in the Arts at Texas Southern University. This exhibition is the final requirement for these young gifted artists in their quest to obtain their first degree in Fine Arts. The exhibition will be on view Friday, May 12 to Sunday, May 28, with a special opening reception at 6pm on May 12. We welcome all to join us, in the introduction of our graduating seniors to the art community of Houston.
