Congratulations to Jamey Grimes, CARI Fellow and Assistant Professor of Art, and Dr. Julia Brock, CARI Fellow and Assistant Professor of History on being awarded a National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) Our Town grant for their project, Flow Tuscaloosa.
Flow Tuscaloosa recognizes the successful restoration of Hurricane Creek, a Tuscaloosa natural resource, as inspiration to ignite action to protect the resources of the Black Warrior River watershed and bring attention to environmental justice efforts in West Alabama. Drawing from expressive and visual art as a stimulus for dialogue, engagement, and play, the project nurtures local commitment to environmental stewardship through arts-based workshops that culminate with a community lantern parade and a curated exhibition.
