Tennessee State University features the art of a world-renowned artist. Artist Synthia Saint James visited TSU yesterday to display and sell her artwork in Eliot Hall. James’ works can be seen in numerous television shows and films, including the VH1 reality show Basketball Wives and Law Abiding Citizen starring Jamie Foxx. James’ dream to become an artist began when she was 5, and she says being an artist has taken her on an amazing journey.
“It’s been a lot of learning and a lot of researching and doing whatever I could do to make it happen. But it’s all about the art, and also I’m an author.”
James scheduled her own tour of HBCUs across the country, and plans to make many more stops at TSU.
