Historic Third Ward mural restored

In September 2018, the Kinder Foundation donated $100,000 to Houston’s Blue Triangle Community Center to restore a historic Third Ward mural by famous African American artist John Biggers. The 1953 masterpiece, “Contribution of Negro Women to American Life and Education,” was damaged by Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and was recently restored by Scott Haskins, a California-based conservator of fine art. The Foundation’s grant will also support building repairs in the vicinity of the mural.
