Shame on TSU

Two murals painted by a Texas Southern University student 40 years ago were ordered destroyed by school President John Rudley, who disagreed with the university museum director's opinion that the artworks' historical significance made them worth saving.

Workers used white paint last week to cover the murals painted by Harvey Johnson, who retired from TSU in 2007 after 34 years as a professor.
Read the story from the here. "... the school had lost two significant pieces of artwork, said Alvia J. Wardlaw, art history professor and university museum director."
