Happy Black History Month! We love this work by Jamal Cyrus in collaboration with Walter Stanciell, a Houston-based sign painter. It references Blind Lemon Jefferson, known as "Father of the Texas Blues," and the text is from a poem by K. Curtis Lyle that was incorporated into an album by Julius Hemphill. #mkgwatchlist #mkgartmanagement #mkgart #houstonart #contemporaryart #cultureplace #celebrateblack #blackhistorymonth #houstonartist #htx #blues #jamalcyrus #inmangallery High Museum, New Museum, African American Museum, American Art, London Docklands, University Of Houston, Happy Black, Art Watch, London Museums
