Flow Tuscaloosa draws from the successful restoration of Hurricane Creek, a Tuscaloosa natural resource, to inspire protection of the Black Warrior River and its tributaries and to bring attention to the unique history and ecology of our watershed. We hope to foster environmental stewardship through art-making: we’re hosting a series of lantern-building workshops, a community lantern parade, and artist exhibitions in the spring and summer of 2022. See our full calendar and FAQ page for more information.
The project is organized by Jamey Grimes(Art and Art History) and Julia Brock (History) of the University of Alabama and the Selvage Collective. Selvage is made up of Teresa Bramlette Reeves, Kirstie Tepper, and Julia Brock.
The project is indebted to the UA Collaborative Arts Research Initiative, where Grimes and Brock are fellows and where ideas and plans took shape.
