Allison Rowe

Dr. Allison Rowe is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and researcher. Her artistic work attempts to re-personalize political discourses, exploring the possibilities that exist in this transitional process. Allison’s pedagogical and community-centered projects have been manifested in numerous spaces including; the Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club, the Yukon Riverside Arts Festival, and at Toronto Public Library Culture Days. Spurred on by her interest in social engagement, Allison’s recently completed doctoral project is a multi-sited ethnographic case study of gallery-supported socially engaged art in Canada and the United States.

Allison holds a PhD in Art Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and an MFA in Social Practice from California College of the Arts. She is beginning a new position as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Art Education at the University of Iowa in August 2021.
