The Nasher Sculpture Center announced the seventh project to be a part of Nasher XChange, a citywide, museum-organized public art exhibition in celebration of the Nasher’s 10th anniversary. The official announcement was made this evening with artist Vicki Meek and a group of Bishop College alumni at the Paul Quinn College in Dallas. The alumni gathered for the reception and to share their stories through an interactive component of Meek’s artwork, to be titled Black & Blue: Cultural Oasis in the Hills.

The work will celebrate Bishop College’s role in the intellectual and cultural life of Dallas. Bishop College, one of the nation’s 110 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), was founded in East Texas in 1881 and moved to Dallas in 1961. Its ministerial program attracted national attention; its attendants included the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rev. Jesse Jackson. Bishop College closed in 1988 and the campus was acquired by Paul Quinn College, the oldest HBCU west of the Mississippi.
