The public is invited to “Sammy’s Colorful Poetic Artistic Performance,” an exhibit and silent auction, at Fieldwork Projects Gallery, 420 S. Gay St., April 29 at 5 p.m. The exhibit is hosted by “Speak Easy, Listen Hard,” a class led by Breeden Scholar Rick Lowe and professor Wendy DesChene

This semester, Lowe and DesChene’s “Speak Easy, Listen Hard” Social and Community Engaged Art class partnered with the Tuskegee Youth Safe Haven program to create a bridge-building partnership between the cities of Auburn and Tuskegee, Alabama. The goal is to foster a broader sense of community and outreach in the region.

Rick Lowe, a 2014 MacArthur Fellow, is an artist who resides in Houston, Texas. His formal training is in the visual arts. Over the past twenty years he has worked both inside and outside of art world institutions by participating in exhibitions and developing community-based art projects. Wendy DesChene is an associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History.

Sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History and the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (334) 844-4903 or go to this website.
