On February 7th 2019 the Houston Museum of African American Culture proudly unveiled Over There Some Place at the Prairie View Northwest Houston Center in honor of the late Sandra Bland. The exhibition features some of the city’s most electrifying visual artists, all of whom are also past inductees into HMAAC’s Bert Long Jr. Gallery. It is said that Sandy visited the campus library frequently. Her presence can now be experienced through Lee Carrier’s Black in Texas piece, a 96 x 96 inch mixed media mural on birch meant to invoke Sandra Bland’s loving and ambitious spirit.
Extremely gifted artists like Vernon Akili, Christie Leday, Black Bean, Farrah Smith, Romeo Clay Robinson, and Mack Bishop will also exhibit incredible artwork. This exhibition will also feature Aesha Lee Beauty of the Black Woman, Eddie Filer My Life & Life around Me, and Shawn Artis ARTis the Imitation of Life, including the debut of his latest creation Black Art
The Prairie View A&M Northwest Houston Center is open for visitation Monday through Friday from 8am to 9pm and Saturday from 8am to 5pm.
