Texas Southern University Art Gallery Free Admission Saturday

Free Admission Saturday from 10am to 2pm at Texas Southern University Art Gallery - see INFO below. This collection features works from many tribal groups in the western region of Africa, each with its own culture, language, religion, social order and distinct form of art. From the royal artistry of Benin Iron workmanship to the distinct features of Cameroon "grassland style". Our catalogue includes works from Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Burkina-Faso, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Mali, Zaire, Congo Angola, Kenya and Sierra Leone. In the early 1970s, S.W. Mothershed, director of the University Library, allocated funds from the library's annual budget to buy a few pieces of African Art. Mr. Mothershed also spearheaded the building of the Central Library African Art Gallery that presently houses the Collection. When the collection was established during the 1970s fewer than one dozen collections of traditional African art were located at historically Black colleges and universities. The Collection contains 247 pieces of art from West, Central, and East Africa. More Info below.
