Black Art In America is pleased to invite the public to spend an afternoon with our friend and Jazz Aficionado David Houston October 6th at 3pm.
Exploring Jazz and African American visual culture with curator David Houston
David Houston, Curator and Art Historian
David serves as Executive Director at the Bo Bartlett Center and was also co-director and chief curator at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans for eight years before moving to Arkansas in 2011 to help open Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the museum founded by the Walton Family Foundation, which was started by Walmart founders Sam and Helen Walton.
Houston played a vital role in acquisitions that have shaped the Crystal Bridges collection, and he’s been instrumental in the grand opening of the museum that has attracted attendance far surpassing expectations. He has also been the director of two collegiate art galleries, at the University of New Orleans and Clemson University, and has been a professor and lecturer of art. He has published more than 20 articles in academic journals and has served on numerous art panels, boards and committees. BAIA is pleased to invite the public to spend an afternoon with our friend and jazz aficionado David Houston.
