Not only did John Biggers leave his mark on Texas Southern University, but the muralist and educator also inspired generations of emerging and established artists during his 34 years as a professor. Now Sally Reynolds has tracked down almost two dozen of his former students, ranging in age from their fifties to their nineties, in curating a new exhibition for Arts Brookfield, “On My Journey Now — The Legacy of John Biggers,” which includes early works by Biggers. “One of the collectors said to me, ‘There will never be another exhibit like this,’” says Reynolds. “[Biggers] always communicated to his students that everyone is on their journey and it’s an important journey to take.” Expect to see universal themes of man’s connection with nature and the universe, as well as feminine symbols of birth and rebirth.

There’s an opening reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. January 18.

8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday. Continuing 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Through April 3. Two Allen Center. For information, visit artsbrookfield.com. Free.
