The University Museum at Texas Southern University celebrates Congolese painter Cheri Samba. The first of five installations of African art from the Contemporary African Art Collection's "African Art Now: Masterpieces from the Jean Pigozzi Collection," "J'amie Cheri Samba" proves to be both emotionally stirring and socially conscious.
The first time that a full installment of Samba's works is displayed in the United States, Samba is a very popular artist in Europe and Africa. From Swiss collector Jean Pigozzi archives, the "J'aime Cheri Samba" exhibit is in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Initially expressing himself through comics, Samba's talents, he describes, are a combination of artist, storyteller and philosopher. Combining a wry humor and social criticism, many of Samba's art illustrates political conflict and social controversy through bright, animated subjects.
The "J'amie Cheri Samba" exhibit will be on view through May 6, 2005.

The Permanent Collection, Texas Southern University: A Cultural Legacy


World renowned artist John T. Biggers came to Texas Southern University in 1949 to establish an art department for what was then a newly established and highly anticipated institution of higher learning for African Americans. An artist and scholar of great vision, Biggers developed programs of instruction for art students that emphasized an expression of the heritage of the African Diaspora. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, and weaving were all created in a manner that emphasized individual talent while reflecting the richness of African American culture. The travels to West Africa in the 1950s of Biggers and ceramist Carroll Harris Simms imbued both professors with an enduring love and respect of African traditions that impacted their teaching. A major contribution by Dr. Biggers was the establishment of the mural program in the tradition of the great Mexican muralists that all art majors were required to complete. The terra cotta shrine figures that were created under the instruction of Professor Simms represents a body of work that is unique in the world. Each year, at the completion of an art major's senior exhibition, works were selected by the faculty to be included in the department's permanent collection. This tradition continues in the twenty-first century as students explore new media and methods of creating art. To date there are over 1400 works in various media included in the permanent collection, and there are 200 murals created by art majors that are on view to the public in Hannah Hall and throughout the university campus.

Equestrian Figure
Nigeria, Benin; Bronze; Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Smith


Equestrian figures of this type would be placed on royal altars more than three hundred years ago in the ancient royal kingdoms of Ife and Benin. The figure, which may represent a defeated king or warrior from another culture, could have celebrated a great victory in battle. The detailed regalia worn by the figure suggests that the work depicts the Benin oba (king) himself, since horses were a rare luxury reserved for royalty. The crown, as well as elements of the torso ornamentation,have been seen in Benin bronze plaques dating from the sixteenth century. Some scholars believe the rider commemorates Oranmiyan, a prince from a neighboring kingdom who founded the royal lineage and introduced horses to the new kingdom.
