A visionary artist inspires humanity through her work.
Artist Mira Lehr confronted 2020 with new planetary visions beyond boundaries. She created a bold new series of work during the pandemic quarantine in celebration of her 60th anniversary as a co-founder of one of first co-ops for women artists in the US.
During her six decades of making art, Lehr created a prodigious amount of work. Her latest series, Planetary Visions, was presented as a solo exhibition at Rosenbaum Contemporary gallery (rosenbaumcontemporary.com) in Boca Raton, Florida. The gallery has also launched online initiatives to allow art lovers worldwide to experience artistic work across digital platforms.
Lehr’s exhibitions (solo and group) number more than 300. Major institutions have collected her work across the US, including the Getty Research Institute, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Pèrez Art Museum Miami, and the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.
In 1960, Lehr pioneered her vision by founding the Continuum, one of America’s first artist co-ops for women.
Lehr recently spoke about the global pandemic as a major turning point for humanity. For the first time in history, the entire population of the planet is thinking about the same problems and searching for the same solutions, she says. Her goal is to inspire humanity to meet this challenge and transcend across borders with a unified vision for the world. She urges everyone to work together to address global problems without thoughts of artificial separations between human beings.
The depth and scope of the trajectory of Lehr’s perspective cover the social changes from the 1960s into the 21st century. Her art navigates a direction into the unknown.
