HBU – Rich in History
The Fine Arts Museum, Contemporary Art Gallery and Gallery 220 are located in the University Academic Center. These museum and gallery spaces support lifelong learning among a range of audiences, including the University family and the broader arts Houston community.
The Fine Arts Museum promotes the understanding of the visual arts and their importance to cultural and intellectual history through direct experiences with original works of art and through an interdisciplinary approach to its collections, exhibitions, publications, and programs.
The mission of the Contemporary Art Gallery is to encourage contemporary artists to challenge and educate public perceptions of civic and social ideas and aesthetic and spiritual consciousness. The gallery functions as a teaching laboratory, hosts gallery tours and lectures by art department faculty and visiting artists, and periodically tours its exhibitions to other exhibition venues.
Art exhibits by regional artists are rotated every two months during the Fall and Spring semesters in both of these unique spaces. Visiting artists provide meaningful interaction and inspiration during gallery talks presented at the regularly scheduled opening receptions. HBU art students also participate in the installation process during their courses in Gallery and Museum practices.
Other HBU Museums
The Dunham Bible Museum, the Museum of American Architecture and Decorative Arts and the Museum of Southern History are housed within the Joella and Stewart Morris Cultural Arts Center. These museums enrich the educational environment and improve the community by attracting history lovers and learners of all kinds to HBU’s campus.
Holding one of the most extensive collections of rare bibles in the nation, the Dunham Bible Museum’s exhibits include ancient manuscripts, medieval scriptures, a working Gutenberg-style printing press, some of the first Bibles printed in America and even some of the earliest Bibles printed in the English language—all creatively displayed to show the Bible’s history and impact on civilization and culture.
Showcasing Texas between 1830 and 1930, the Museum of American Architecture and Decorative Arts features household furnishings and decorative arts from the days when Houston was merely a frontier settlement.
A window into the South during the mid-1800s, the Museum of Southern History showcases room settings, clothing, fine furnishings, uniforms, tools and weapons that give visitors a sense of how settlers rebuilt their lives after the Civil War.
