Erica V. P. Lewis

Graduate Teaching Assistant, University of Louisville

Adjunct Professor, Georgetown College




Artist and researcher—Erica Lewis investigates the intersections of systemic biases and their concrete detriment in physical, particularly artistic, spaces. 

Lewis holds an M.F.A. in Studio Art & Design from the University of Louisville in Kentucky, where they are currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Humanities on the Public Arts & Letters track. In 2023, Lewis worked on a project led by Dr. Felicia Jamison titled Uncovering Oxmoor: Amplifying the Lives of Enslaved People at a Plantation in Louisville, Kentucky, during which they worked in the Filson Historical Society’s archives to construct biographies for the people enslaved at Oxmoor Farm. 

Currently, Lewis works as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Louisville Comparative Humanities Department and an Adjunct Professor at the Georgetown College Art Department. Throughout their pedagogy, Lewis follows conversations of Art with those of decolonizing its institutions. Lewis has a passion for teaching and hopes to continue their journey in academia after finishing their Ph.D., especially in creative and interdisciplinary avenues.

Lewis has been published in Message *Special C-19 Issue (2022), an international peer-reviewed journal for graphic design, and Art in the Time of Corona (Vol. 2) A Global Project (2023) with artwork on the cover of Unsettling Archival Research: Engaging Critical, Communal, and Digital Archives (2023). Lewis is also active in their art practice, exhibiting their work under their initials—EVPL.
