Rick Lowe is a nationally recognized artist who has served his community in Houston with a project called Project Rowe Houses for over 20 years. I visited him there once about 9 years ago. He was playing checkers with some neighbors in the community house. He is a pleasant, easy-going man. He got up and showed me around the Project, picking up a small piece of trash from the grass as we talked. He is a leader in social practice in Houston and beyond and now also a MacArthur fellow.
Here’s to you Rick! Congratulations!
