Ted Ellis Bio:
Raised and educated in New Orleans, a city known for its rich African-American heritage history, Ted Ellis is a self-taught artist, celebrated by dignitaries in and out of the art community. Currently residing in Friendswood, Texas, Ellis’s work, according to US Congressman Randy Weber, evokes feelings of “empowerment and hope”. In addition to being commissioned by well-known brands such as Walt Disney Studios and Coca-Cola, Ted had the honor of being the official artist of two of the most historic events in US history. In March 2015, Ellis unveiled the commemorative art work, Bloody Sunday—Selma, 1965, for the City of Selma in honor of the 50th anniversary of the historic walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Ted’s Juneteenth Freedom Project was featured at the US Senate Building in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth. Learn more about Ted and his work at www.TEllisFineArt.com.

CHACC is located at 3200 MLK Jr. Ave. SE.
