Big chunks of downtown Lubbock don’t have anything going on, but the north end is turning into a interesting arts center. It’s anchored by the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and the Charles Adams Studio Project, and there is nearly always something interesting going on. Last winter I took letterpress classes down here, and the other night – when I made this image – I was taking part in a drink-and-draw event hosted by one of the CASP artists in residence.

I like to think about the “traditional” efforts at downtown revitalization in Lubbock, that haven’t always been successful, and compare them with how much the arts have transformed this area. Maybe there’s a lesson here?

  1. Drink and Draw ? Hmmm, maybe I could draw better if I drank more. Best of luck to Lubbock. For several years now downtown Knoxville and
    areas are having a resurgence. Oh, almost forgot, nice image and post.

  2. I don’t know if drinking would improve my drawing much… but I bet it would make me care less about the result…
