Lewis is a Detroit-based multidisciplinary activist artist using painting, installation, and participatory performance to explore themes related to American identity, power structures, and justice. She often creates these works in public spaces.
A Post-Colorblind America is a mural referencing the I AM A MAN protest poster of the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike. The work was originally created for the ACT ART NOW show coordinated by and shown at the Obama White House in 2015.
This edition of the work invites people to participate in the discussion of racism and humanity in 2018 by adding their signatures to the mural if they commit to unequivocally understanding that all humans are their equals, and thus acting accordingly.
