Jesse Howard Artist Lecture

Howard’s work is relevant and provoking. While masked by beautifully expressive lines and pops of color, if some of his work makes you feel disheartened, angry, or energized, well, it should. Howard combines imagery culled from many sources such as news reports about police brutality, witnessed homelessness and desperation, as well as rising activism such as The Movement for Black Lives. He creates his characters from lived experiences—both personal and those of others—and when viewing his work you feel their sorrow, defiance, determination, anger, and resistance.
