A local architecture professor proves he can do more than just blueprints.
A reception was held Sunday afternoon at the Brazos Valley African-American Museum for Robert Schiffhauer.
The artist and A&M professor, recently completed several portraits featuring influential African-Americans.
Shiffhauer said the spirit and feel of jazz music inspired his masterpieces.
He also said he hopes his art work rekindles interest in those pioneering African-Americans whom helped cultivate American and world history.
Schiffhauer's artwork will be on display at the Brazos Valley African American Museum through September.
