ON VIEW UNTIL JUNE 2024: This exhibition at the African American History Research Center highlights the artwork of Timekeepers Resource Awardable Coalition members, a Houston-area group of senior artists who studied under the guidance of nationally renowned artist and muralist Dr. John Biggers and sculptor Carol Simms at Texas Southern University.
Artists featured in the show are:
From painting and sculpture to photography and decor, African American fine art covers a wide range of styles and techniques. The creative expression of Black art captures themes of identity, history, lived experiences, the beauty of the African diaspora, and so much more.
A railroad track, once essential in Houston, became a resource of the Art Center on TSU’s campus and is represented today by TRAC. The railroad track defines the fine line between creative arts and cognitive growth. Each artist learned the significance of carefully placed pillars, spikes, and rail which tie together humanities of the past with present day passions.
Visitors can view the show on the second floor during business hours of Tuesday–Wednesday and Friday–Saturday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Thursday 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM
