The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts presents April Danielle Lewis whose recent interventions, performances, installations and experiences have situated Baltimore at the center of dialogs around history, place, and identity sharpened with a social justice and community building lens.
April Danielle Lewis is an artist, visionary, and community cultivator. Derived from a printmaking background, her performances and interventions often involve working in multiples, repetitive actions and building a framework that allows for works and performances to naturally evolve. Her work collaborates and invites her audience to be participants in engaging and building community. Lewis earned a degree in art and design with a concentration in printmaking from Towson University and an Associate of Arts degree in visual art from Anne Arundel Community College. She serves as the Membership Manager at Open Works, a non-profit makerspace that makes tools, technology and the knowledge to use them accessible to all, volunteers as librarian at the Station North Tool Library and serves on the board of directors at Neighborhood Housing Services Baltimore. April lives and works in Baltimore.
This is a free, catered event – good vegetarian options will be provided.
