Interactive digital works by Owen Lowery
January 24 – April 4, 2024

Gallery Reception with Artist: Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2024
Lunchtime Artist Lecture: Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2024


Owen Lowery (he/him) is a Pittsburgh-based interactive artist with a mission to create situations that foster and reward curiosity. He prioritizes Universal Design in his work, hoping all people—regardless of age, height, background, or accessibility situation—can engage meaningfully. He sees his art as existing within situations rather than physical artwork itself. The art comes alive in moments when curiosity takes over and deeper exploration begins. Lowery hopes people take a little of this curiosity away with them into daily life.

While in residence Lowery will transform the Eric Dean Gallery into an interactive installation space and prototyping workshop where visitors can engage with his process, their own curiosity, and aid in the development of new artworks. 

Owen has been a “Tough Artist” at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, the Community Artist-in-Residence at the Currier Museum of Art, and is 2023 Maker-in-Residence at the Scott Family Amazeum in Bentonville, AR.  He is a Heinz Endowment Awardee, a recipient of the Burning Man Global Arts Grant, and was awarded the Consumer Involvement Award by the Cuyahoga County Mental Health Board of Cleveland, OH. His work has been featured at multiple festivals including the Currents New Media Fest in Santa Fe, True/False Film Fest in Columbia, MO, and Ingenuity Fest Cleveland. Lowery aims to create work with communities rather than for them, seeing people not as an audience, but as integral to the interactive medium itself, both as catalysts to the artwork and collaborators in its development. With this goal in mind his work is often found in less traditional art spaces such as libraries, community centers, hospitals, halfway houses, psychiatric care facilities, maker spaces, education spaces, and community-oriented programming.

Lowery will hold the position of Artist-in-Residence in the Wabash Art Department in spring 2024. He will co-teach a course that engages students in his community engaged practice and invite the Wabash and Montgomery County community to a series of public engagements.
