With a distinguished career as an artist spanning six decades, Robert Morris has exhibited in many prestigious art venues in the country and received several awards in honor of his work. He has held faculty positions at Wesleyan University (Connecticut), University of Bridgeport (Connecticut), and the University of Houston (Texas). Also, during the late 1950s, he served as the Exhibition Designer at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Subsequently, as the Director of the Houston Contemporary Arts Museum, he staged avant garde exhibitions such as the Tenth Street Abstract Expressionists and gave early exposure to work of Robert Rauschenberg, Ray Johnson and others. Before retirement, he was a Visiting Professor of Art, Trinity College (Connecticut) -- including a stint teaching Monument Drawing in their Rome, Italy location.
