Schiffhauer exhibits

Museum features Schiffhauer’s
Charles Gordone portrait series



An exhibit featuring portraits of the late Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Charles Gordone, painted by Texas A&M architecture professor Robert Schiffhauer, highlighted the July 22 grand opening of the Brazos Valley African-American Museum in Bryan, Texas.

The paintings and drawings, in media ranging from brilliant acrylic to muted charcoal, explored the life of a man Schiffhauer had known only from photographs, newspaper clippings and through a friendship with his widow, Susan Kouyomijian Gordone.

A story and slide show examining Schiffhauer’s work on the Charles Gordone portrait series, “Legacy of a Seer,” was featured in the spring 2005 issue of the College of Architecture’s archone. newsletter:

The Brazos Valley African American Museum is located at 400 East 20th St. in Bryan. Admissionis $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and $2 for students. Children 5 and under are admitted free.
