Remaking Metropolises

When poverty, blight, and neglect devastate cities, it is often artists who step in to revitalize them, restoring opportunity and hope. The art of creative placemaking is a powerful force for recasting the futures of our most troubled urban centers. Learn how from two of the masters, Houston’s 2014 MacArthur Fellow Rick Lowe and Detroit’s Powerhouse co-founder Gina Reichert.
