Theaster Gates

This artist is on the cover of Little Patuxent Review this issue.  Click here to check it out. Gates scavenges old urban communities for objects like fire hoses and shoeshine stands to use in sculptures that reference the civil rights era. The cool part: he reinvests money from the sale of a sculpture back into the community where he found the materials.
