Panel Discussion featuring Janeil Engelstad / Make Art with Purpose, Rick Lowe / Project Row Houses and Vicki Meek, Artist and Curator. Moderated by Greg Metz, Professor of Art, University of Texas, Dallas.

Many have combated this by developing artwork that aims to inspire more active social engagement. During the month of October Dallas will premiere the work of three renowned ‘Social Practice’ artists . . .
