A2AC Murals is pleased to have Detroit-based artist Ann Lewis as part of this public art project.

Ann is a Detroit-based multidisciplinary artist who uses public space and participatory performances to respond to current social and political issues. As an interdisciplinary activist artist, she incorporates painting, installation, sculpture, and participatory means to explore themes related to American identity, power structures, and justice. Ann’s work often includes repetition through graphic elements, and a limited color palette while conveying messages around intersectional social justice issues such as gentrification, women’s rights, and police brutality. In 2017 she was commissioned by Now + There to complete See Her, which won An Americans for the Arts Public Art Network Award. This mural was created in a community with local returning women and highlighted the humanity and dignity of women transitioning out of incarceration. Ann has since received several large-scale public art commissions. These include Same, Same, but Different a 500′ long work at the Pittsburgh International Airport as well as her most recent mural To Be Human a 17,000 sq foot mural at the Duolingo Headquarters.
