Announcement at Texas Southern University
Officials at Texas Southern University announced plans to restore artwork on the walls of Hannah Hall.
According to a university release, inspired by the murals of Charles White and Diego Rivera, Dr. John T. Biggers, world renowned artist and founder of the Art Department at Texas Southern, instituted the program of mural painting for art majors soon after he arrived on the campus. The result is a visual narrative of African American culture with themes ranging from Reconstruction and the early development of Historically Black Colleges, to the Civil Rights Movement, to the impact of global culture and migration on the world’s youth.
Texas Southern University is at 3100 Cleburne St., Houston.
