RORY WHITE      roreeewhite@hotmail.com 

Career Points: OIL PAINTER, PHOTOGRAPHER, ACTIVIST

Eli Lilly Person of the Decade Award

2008 Eli Lilly WBA Program, Person of the Decade award for work in Skid Row, founding an MFA level studio art project for homeless and recently homeless and homeless mentally ill in 1998-2008.  

A Main Subject of Film: HUMBLE BEAUTY: SKID ROW ARTISTS

major subject as one of the mentors in the multiply awarded film, HUMBLE BEAUTY: SKID ROW ARTISTS available on Amazon Prime, Google Play, and other venues .  NOTE: the film includes a finite, but significant, selection of my still photographs, woven into the matrix of visuals of the film.

(see HumbleBeauty.com)

"PASSING THROUGH", a major documentary project covering myself, Rory White, and a core group of artists I've worked with beginning in the intense SKID ROW sector of Los Angeles in 1998 through present work centered at the extreme southernmost tip of Los Angeles, in San Pedro, on the cliffs over the ocean.  

"PASSING THROUGH" is a film by Leslie Dektor, who is simultaneously Director of an in pre-production major motion picture with executive producer David Fincher ("Fight Club" "House of Cards" "Curious Case of Benjamin Button") on the photographer: DOROTHEA LANGE, the film title being "LANGE".   

ART WORKS CONTINUUM Project: Designed and implemented contination of art projects serving homeless and other marginalized persons with a Master of Fine Arts LEVEL studio project and system of supplies and support and exhibition, including website, motion picture, and other contemporary exhibition venues.    

This "Continuum" encompasses projects as early as the

1970's "Women's Prison Project" (one of the very few male teachers asked to participate in the full credit University of California extension class program taught at California Institution for Women, Frontera, CA), as well as the

Skid Row Lamp Art Project, (see below),

ART WORKS Project, 2011-2014 sponsored by Aileen Getty and in conjunction with Housing Works, and current work to date.  

see WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/ARTWORKSPROJECT for Art Works Project and the Skid Row Lamp Art Project and work to present day, 2017, is well covered in the 1000+ image facebook nonprofit site: www.facebook.com/artworksproject     (note: go to Photos then Albums.  then select individual albums to go through for extensive photo essays).

-SKID ROW LAMP ART PROJECT  1998-2008


-designed, founded and ran for ten years (1998-2008) the Lamp Art Project for Lamp Community and serving homeless, formerly homeless, and other Skid Row residents, with a Master's level studio art program in the heart of Los Angeles’ Skid Row sector.  did this project in conjunction with the early decades of Lamp Community’s then cutting edge existence.


-took over 100,000 photographs in Skid Row, taught oil painting, and created my own oils and drawings in that period.   including accomplishing a massive photographic coverage of the thousands of arrests in the star-crossed and ultimately horrific "Los Angeles Safer Cities Initiative". 

-ART WORKS PROJECT/Continuum:   2011-2015 and as a CONTINUUM to this day 

-designed and ran ART WORKS project, Sponsored by Aileen Getty, and in conjunction with the nonprofit, Housing Works, serving artists and other humans who have experienced marginalization by homelessness and/or  conditions of difference and vulnerability in Los Angeles.

(The project has a three year granted period and embraced artists I had both previously worked with, and artists I work with to this day).


-ARTIST'S NOTES:

-I have worked in Art and Social Justice my entire life, my first most visible involvement being one of the few male course instructors through the Santa Cruz Women’s Prison Project through which i designed and taught a combined Art History and Studio Arts course at California Institution for Women's Death Row (SSU/Special Security Unit) in 1973-74.   Program directed by Dr. Karlene Faith Ph.D. (Professor Emeritus Simon Fraser University School of Criminology, author "Unruly Women: the Politics of Confinement and Resistance”).


One of my initial premises in doing art projects for outsiders was that creative genius is extremely high in persons that do not fit into the tight linear tracks of this country’s educational, and societal fine arts systems and structures.  I never embraced the ludicrous notion that the Skid Row inhabitants “needed culture brought to them” but that the culture of the people of Skid Row was radically spiritual, intelligent, brave and exquisite.  I sought the honor of offering simple resources considered normal in the rest of societal niches, that is a Master’s Level studio space and materials for the fine arts, to the peoples of Skid Row.  


The project was an amazing success, the artists producing thousands of museum level paintings and works of art, winning Frederick Weisman, Green Foundation, Annenberg and other awards. We were featured heavily in the award winning documentary film “Humble Beauty” and the unfinished “Ashes and Roses” and I myself was given the Eli Lilly Welcome Back Award “Person of the Decade” grant in 2008 to continue my work in art and social justice.
