Mira Lehr | Biography

Mira Lehr, a multimedia artist whose career spans four decades, is a native New Yorker now working in Miami. Her nature-based imagery encompasses painting, design, sculpture and video installations. Processes include non-traditional media such as resin, gunpowder, fire, Japanese paper, dyes and welded steel. 

Lehr graduated from Vassar College with a degree in art history and studied painting with the renowned Robert Motherwell. As a young female artist in the 50’s - 60’s Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism and had much to do with mobilizing the female voice in cities like Miami. There she co-founded the Continuum Gallery, the first women’s co-op in the southeast. In 1969, Lehr was selected to be a participant with Buckminster Fuller on the first World Game Scenario Project at the New York Studio School. 

Exhibitions and archives include the Bass Museum of Art, the Miami Art Museum, the New Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Getty Museum Research Center and American Embassies around the world.
