Once Upon a Culture: The Art of Milton Bowens

Milton Bowens

The work of Milton Bowens was on display in the Rosenberg Library during February, 2009 as part of the Library’s celebration of African American History Month. Bowens also spoke at the Ocean, John Adams and Mission Campuses. The national theme for this celebration was “Quest for Black Citizenship in the Americas.” As artist citizen, Bowens describes some of the roles of art: “to try to bring about a level of civility to a community in need of inspiration,” and to keep art a vital part of public education and a tool to help rebuild self-esteem in youth.”
