Opening Saturday, October 22nd, from 12PM - 1PM
For artist and MacArthur Fellow Rick Lowe, art doesn’t only hang on walls in museums, art is all around us. Art is street murals celebrating Black-owned businesses. Art is the Project Row Houses in Houston’s historic Third Ward. Art is the act we take as members of our communities. At CHF, Lowe reflects on community-based creative practices and the power of art to remake our public lives as he converses with Amanda Williams.
This program is presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
