The University Museum at Texas Southern University is one of the premiere museums celebrating African American art and artifacts in Houston.
Founded in 2000, the museum sits on the sprawling Texas Southern University campus in the south wing of the Fairchild Building, the oldest and most historically significant building on campus. The University Museum features work from local and nationally renowned artists such as Dr. John Biggers, David Newtown, and Barbara DuMetz among others. The museum regularly hosts new exhibitions and seeks to preserve the legacy of local artists in Houston. Art from the African continent’s rich history is also often featured in exhibitions.
Parking is available in Lot L at Blodgett and Ennis using the Blodgett visitor’s entrance. Validated parking is available for all visitors to the museum.
