Norco College Art Gallery is honored to host Michael Lewis Miller: 1989 to Present, Survey Exhibition. Michael is a beloved artist, curator and instructor whose work has not previously been exhibited in the Inland Empire. His work, both in sculpture and performance, demonstrate the power of art to find meaning in life. Various themes – childhood, personal memory, gender, sexuality, history, pain, and joy – comingle in his whimsical, witty, and profound creations. Michael’s art is welcomed here at Norco College, where we celebrate diverse perspectives and honor the dignity of every individual. Through his art, it is hoped that students, as well as the larger community, will take time to see the world a bit differently, to pause and reflect on their own lives, and find beauty in surprising places. Michael Lewis Miller earned a Masters in Fine Art (MFA) at the University of Southern California (USC). He also holds a Masters (MS) degree in Geology from the University of Kentucky, Lexington and a Bachelors (BS) in Geology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg. In addition to making, exhibiting and performing his art works, Michael Lewis Miller is a curator, organizing contemporary exhibition focused on social practice. He worked with the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), City of Los Angeles for over 25 years, and teaches courses in Curatorial Practices, Gallery/Museum and Artist Career issues, and three-dimensional intermedia art at several colleges. He is the gallery director at El Camino College. Michael Lewis Miller lives and works in Los Angeles.
