Five-A, the African American Art Advisory Association at the MFAH, was established in 1993 to enhance the Museum’s collections of African American and African art. At the end of each year, Five-A uses its membership dues and other fundraising proceeds to purchase major works for the Museum. In addition to sponsoring acclaimed artists, Five-A also has championed artists that history has overlooked. The support and guidance of Five-A has been instrumental in shepherding up-and-coming artists into the collection. Since its founding, Five-A has brought 44 objects into the Museum’s collection.
