The art of hope: Exhibit brings artists together to examine past, future of Greenwood

By James D, Watts Jr., Tulsa World

The Greenwood Art Project is an initiative of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission, which seeks not only to raise awareness of the destruction and loss of life associated with the massacre, but also to celebrate the resilience, healing and recovery of the community, in ways that resonate in today’s world.

Led by nationally known artists Rick Lowe and William Cordova with local assistance from Jerica Wortham, Marlon Hall, Jeff Van Hanken and Kode Ransom, the Greenwood Art Program is funded in part by a $1 million award from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Public Art Challenge and a $200,000 grant from the George Kaiser Family Foundation.
