Britt Lower is an artist who uses performance, body art, and public space to connect people through shared experience. She began face painting in high school with her mother (known as The Zoo Lady) at various festivals in the midwest. While studying art at Northwestern University, she was introduced to relational aesthetics by her mentor, Michael Rakowitz. Inspired by happenings of the 60s, she began combining face painting and performance art. During this time, she met Christopher Agostino, the artistic director of New York's premiere face-painting company, Agostino Arts and further honed her style under his direction. Since then, she has transformed faces with Agostino Arts at the US Open, the CBS morning show, World Science Fest, the Bronx Zoo, for the Knicks, and most recently, on Conan O' Brien. Britt also works as an actor/writer in theater, television and film. You can see a list of her work here.
