GRAY AREA, a project of DesignPhiladelphia, presents Rick Lowe for their Preservation Provocateur speaker series. Rick Lowe is a Houston artist, activist, and founder of Project Row Houses. On May 6th, Lowe will discuss how Project Row Houses has incorporated the preservation of small, freestanding “shotgun-style” houses, and the character of the historic 3rd Ward into its community-building work. Rick Lowe’s appearance is a partnership between GRAY AREA and the African-American Museum in Philadelphia. This event is free, however registration is appreciated.
