Michael Henderson, has been selected as the new chair of the Sam Houston State University Art Department, after the departure of longtime chair Tony Shipp, who stepped down in the fall 2012 amid an ongoing sexual harassment scandal. The university is in the middle of the delicate process of seeking accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Henderson, who has been teaching at SHSU since 2001 and developed the school’s popular degree program in Computer Animation, is a founding member of BOX13 Art Space in Houston. He will begin his new position in the fall.
