Lauren Crawford is a Baltimore based artist who teaches Studio Art, Wellness, Life Skills, and Community Minds. Lauren holds a Master's degree from M.I.C.A. and attended U.N.C. Greensboro to earn her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting with Cum Laude honors. Her passion of travel and art have fortuitously aligned throughout her career, and have sent her around the globe in the pursuit of living creatively. Lauren has worked with the Museum of Outdoor Arts, Denver, to collaborate on the large scale installation Natura Obscura and was awarded a fellowship with 77Art fall of 2019. When not at Fusion, Lauren can be found forever playing Tetris in her studio with all the unnecessarily large art objects she insists on producing.
