At The Art of Trans.lation, Vickery Meadow, visitors can get a preview of Rick Lowe's Nasher Xchange project, find out what is going on, who is involved, how it works and how they can become involved as a volunteer, participant, contributor or observer in this bold experiment to effect change in the cultural dynamics of Dallas.
Houston-based artist Rick Lowe is internationally respected for one of the most successful community art projects in the world, Project Row Houses, located in Houston’s Third Ward neighborhood. For his Nasher XChange commission, Lowe is working with an eclectic group of artists, community organizers, designers and residents to highlight and translate the cultural diversity of Vickery Meadow as an asset. Through a series of workshops and gatherings with residents, Lowe and the Trans.lation team are identifying residents’ creative strengths and connecting them with local artists for collaboration and mentorship to ultimately engender opportunity and entrepreneurship. Trans.lation will facilitate a new vision of what public space and interaction could look like in Vickery Meadow.
