About

Blue Zen 54 X 60 Burned and dyed Japanese paper, Woodblock, ignited gun powder and fuses, ink and acrylic on canvas. Mira Lehr is a multimedia artist from Miami whose career spans four decades. Her nature-based imagery encompasses painting, design, sculpture and video installations. Lehr’s processes include non-traditional media such as resin, gunpowder, fire, Japanese paper, dyes and welded steel. Mira Lehr graduated from Vassar College with a degree in art history where she studied with the feminist art historian, Linda Nochlin. As a young female artist in the 1950s and 60s, Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism. She had much to do with mobilizing the female voice in cities like Miami, where she cofounded the Continuum Gallery, one of the first women’s co-ops in the Southeast. She worked with Robert Motherwell and in 1969, Lehr was selected to participate with Buckminster Fuller on the first World Game Scenario Project at the New York Studio School. Lehr’s art has been exhibited and collected by institutions across the U.S., including the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, NY, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens, Bass Museum of Art, and Perez Art Museum, Miami, FL, the New Museum, New York, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC, and the Getty Museum Research Center, Los Angeles, CA. Lehr’s work can also be seen in American Embassies around the world. Her most recent video installation, V1 V3, was on view at the New Museum, NY. Notably, her work is permanently on view in the lobby of the Evelyn Lauder Breast Center of the Sloan Kettering Memorial Center. Two major works are housed at the state of the art Robertson building of the MSKCC. In addition, one of Lehr’s works on resins was recently acquired for the prestigious Leonard Lauder Corporate Collection in New York. Lehr has been commissioned to create a site-specific installation by the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens as part of the Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya, a two-part exhibition on view from May 2016 through May 2017, in conjunction with Vizcaya’s centennial. Most recently, she created a 40-foot window installation at Temple Beth Sholom, Miami Beach, as a part of her exhibition Between the Meadow and the Moon. Lehr has affected a new generation of young artists by serving as a mentor and collaborator. She has taught master classes with the National Young Arts Foundation and has been artist in residence at the Bascom Summer Programs.
