RickLoweRick is an acclaimed artist and the founder of Project Row Houses, an influential urban neighborhood project that has won acclaim from around the world. Project Row Houses is a catalyst for realizing a community development project that has broader and more meaningful implications than conventional development projects. The project is at once neighborhood development, historic preservation, public art and a conduit for educational activities and community services. The realization of this project has involved a broad coalition of diverse racial, cultural, economic and professional people from inside and outside Third Ward together with corporations and foundations to renovate these houses and implement its comprehensive art, education and social programs. The project has become a nexus of tremendous energy and experience. It has become a fluid conversation between people of the most diverse backgrounds in important issues of ethics, race relations, social justice, historic preservation, economic sufficiency and the role that art and architecture play in our lives and our surrounding communities
