Art Museum and Galleries

Commitment to the Arts

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 Houston arts community.

Fine Arts Museum

Religious-themed paintings and prints are on display in the Fine Arts Museum, including St. John in the Wilderness by Sir Anthony Van Dyck, c.1624. Programming varies throughout the academic year and includes lectures, poetry readings and musical performances, as well as community outreach programs.

Contemporary Art Gallery

The Contemporary Art Gallery is located in the University Academic Center on the Houston Baptist University campus. This state-of-the art exhibition space was completed in the summer of 2012, and its inaugural exhibition, “Spontaneous Memorial: A Commemorative Installation” by Frank McEntire, honored the victims of 9/11.

Gallery 220

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.
