  • When we went there weren't many pieces of art on display however everyone there was incredibly friendly I love the gift shop which is filled with African themed clothing including scrubs a lot of the artwork took an incredible amount of work and talent to accomplish I don't remember the name of all the artist but they had embroidered art they had artwork involving neon colors involving textured paintings involving photographs taken in West Africa and there was one particular piece of artwork which had depth to it as an actual depth perception illusion and involve Driftwood pieces of broken glass and some of the brown paint actually Incorporated the artist own blood and honestly I was really impressed I was impressed with the overall piece with the message of it which was about the spiritual journey and with a Shear technique that was involved also I really appreciate Dominique who worked Museum and spend some time discussing yard work with me and what he knew about the artist and everything for the more I just really enjoyed the space it looks like an amazing space to have a grand opening or a party in so you know I'm just really happy that they have such a museum here in Houston for people to visit and to visit for free that's out of just wish I had a little more content inside of it and that's really it but I really do appreciate the space and would support it any time
  • Absolutely, AMAZING!!! There were 3 different displays plus a gift shop with more artwork, books, and other items for sale. My only suggestion is to have the title available of displayed art for sale. I would've made a purchase, but no one could tell me the name. 😞 I look forward to returning for the next exhibit and seminar. It's a perfect venue for community forums! 🙌🏾🤸🏾‍♀️
