In Honor and Memory of Michael Galbreth

Michael Galbreth

The Department of Art is deeply saddened by the loss of Houston artist Michael Galbreth on October 19, 2019.

Michael was teaching 3 courses in the Department of Art at SHSU at the time of his death. Shortly before his passing, he discussed the importance and benefit of exposing students to visiting artists and guest lecturers and expressed a desire to help support and build a significant program at SHSU.

To honor his memory and his devotion to his students, The Department of Art will establish a fund in his name to support a Visiting Artists and Guest Lecture series.
