“The Telling and the Told: The Art of David McGee,”
a selection of his works from the 1990s, is his first solo outing at the Houston Museum of African-American Culture after successful turns at art houses throughout the city he calls home. “My art isn’t about the African-American experience; it’s a study of the human experience,” McGee has said about his work. Still, to see black and brown faces in his most appreciated works, whether painted or on paper, is a given.

David McGee’s works are ensconced in the now. Though his inspirations might reach across the pop culture and art spectrums, they take piercing looks at what it means to be black in America.
