Damn the Torpedoes: A Life in Service to Art

BY PAULA OWEN
@ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

Paula Owen believes artists are essential in a healthy society — agents of social change able to articulate bold, complicated and important ideas. That passion has driven her to take great calculated risks in her life and career, and to great effect: She overcame childhood polio and helped raise her siblings after her mother was left disabled by the disease. She went on an archaeological dig during a military coup in Panama. She graduated college at a time when 70% of women did not work outside the home. That determination contributed to her successful leadership of the Southwest School of Art, where she serves her ultimate goal of fostering artists in the Southwest.
