Join art historian Deborah Lubera Kawsky to explore the inspiring life and art of Artis Lane, who studied Painting at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1951 and was presented with an honorary MFA in 2021.

Lane’s career, which spans more than seven decades, encompasses a wide range of media and themes, including painted and sculpted portraits, boldly colored figurative paintings, and large-scale bronze sculptures on metaphysical topics. Lane’s work can be found in private and public collections, including the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center and the Smithsonian Institution, which recently loaned Lane’s bust of her friend Rosa Parks to the White House for display in the Oval Office. Lane was the subject of a retrospective at the California African American Museum in 2007.
