Abstract:

Printmaker and artist Samella Lewis was born on February 27, 1924 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She earned her B.A. degree from Hampton Institute. She completed her graduate studies at Ohio State University earning her M.A. degree in 1948 and her Ph.D. degree in fine arts and art history as the first African American woman to do so. From 1969 to 1984, Lewis became Scripps College's first tenured African American professor. In order to publish Black Artists on Art, in 1969, she created the first African American-owned art publishing house, Contemporary Crafts, to publish her own work. She helped found the Museum of African American Art in Los Angeles in 1976 and established the International Review of African-American Art. Lewis' works were exhibited in many galleries. She received several distinctions, including the UNICEF Award for the Visual Arts in 1995. Scripps College named an academic scholarship in Lewis’ honor.
