Patrick Rowe is an artist, educator and arts administrator. Through long-term community-based projects, Patrick co-creates spaces for collaboration, active participation, and the exchange of cultural knowledge. Patrick’s recent work has included drawing, printmaking, painting and installation.  Symbols, shapes and photographic images taken from community-based projects (and even found photographs) are coded, interpreted and rearranged in an attempt to identify new paths for his art making and teaching practice.

In 2013 Patrick started Mobile Print Power (MPP), a multigenerational printmaking collective based in Corona, Queens. MPP uses silkscreen printmaking and collaborative design in public space to engage communities and explore social and cultural situations. Since 2013 MPP has created numerous public projects and exhibited at museums and galleries including Interference Archive, Maine College of Art and Queens Museum.

Patrick is currently Director of Education at The Bronx Museum of the Arts where he oversees a wide range of school, teen and family programs. In addition to his work at the museum Patrick is a visiting professor at Pratt Institute where he teaches interdisciplinary graduate courses that focus on the intersection of art, pedagogy and activism.
