    Join Visual Arts Alliance Saturday, August 7, at 11:00 a.m. for a tour of The Blaffer Museum's exhibit Jamal Cyrus: The End of My Beginning with Katherine Veneman, Curator of Education.

    This event will be limited to 15 attendees. Email programs@visualartsalliance.org to RSVP.

    The Blaffer Art Museum, in partnership with Texas Southern University (TSU), is proudly organizing the first survey exhibition of artist Jamal Cyrus, which will span fifteen years of this artist’s prodigious career. As a singular maker, a former member of the pioneering collective Otabenga Jones & Associates, a current professor at TSU, the recipient of the 2020 David C. Driskell Prize, an occasional curator, and steadfast mentor, Cyrus and his influence reverberate throughout his native city of Houston. And while he has participated in a number of national contemporary art biennials, Cyrus’s work has not yet had the platform to be comprehensively studied and celebrated on its own terms.

    In the summer of 2021, the Blaffer will address this overdue need and partner with TSU to present Cyrus’s first museum survey and catalog, titled The End of My Beginning.
