OPENING RECEPTION “Jonathan Paul Jackson: An African American Expression” at Sanman Studios

May 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

MAY 11 – JULY 20, 2024: In his “An African American Expression” series on view at Sanman Studios, Jonathan Paul Jackson creates a visionary and imaginative body of work inspired by his personal exploration and study of the mythology and history concerning African sculpture.

As a visitor to the University Museum at Texas Southern, Jackson was excited and inspired by the relationship between the traditional African sculptures on display, and the art of Dr. John Biggers and his students. This collection serves as a sort of touchstone for the artist, revealing paths of creative possibilities while also underlining the importance of African and African American Art collections in historically Black colleges.
