(Online) Community: Artist Talk with Rick Lowe
Artist Rick Lowe is celebrated for his achievements in both the arts and community revitalization. Lowe is perhaps best known for co-founding the Houston-based Project Row Houses, an arts and cultural community developed in one of the city’s oldest African American neighborhoods that provides art education programs, exhibition spaces, artist studios, gardening, mentoring, and an incubator for housing development, all while preserving the character of the area’s historic shotgun houses.

As an extension of his community projects, Lowe creates abstract works on paper and paintings inspired by dominos, a game which he enjoys and often plays to maintain relationships with residents of his social projects.

This summer, Lowe most recently launched the Greenwood Art Project, a public art initiative of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission that featured 28 artist-led projects throughout Tulsa, OK, that commemorated and engaged residents in the history of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre through art. Additionally, Lowe launched a sister project in Chicago, Black Wall Street Journey, a multi-faceted installation-based project that pays tribute to the journey of building of Black wealth using public art to tell the stories from the journeys of Black communities in Chicago and beyond.

Lowe will be joined by Antwaun Sargent to discuss how creativity can empower people and communities to spark economic, social, and political change.
