Lauren Adelman is a visual artist and educator living in Brooklyn, NY.
Her work explores environmental and social issues through printmaking,
drawing, animation and other media. Most recently she has been focused
on the interconnectedness between the physical systems within our bodies
and the systems of living that we create socially, institutionally and
mechanically. Lauren co-founded and is the Director of Artistic Noise.
Artistic Noise is an arts and entrepreneurship program for youth in the
juvenile justice system and non-adjudicated youth living in the communities
they serve. By working both inside the detention facility and back in
the community, Artistic Noise provides continuity for youth who are often
experiencing trauma and upheaval in their lives. Lauren has also worked
as an educator at the Museum of Modern Art since 2006. She graduated with
a BFA from The School of The Museum of Fine Arts and a MA in Arts Education
from NYU. Lauren first became interested in art as a means of social change
while working for Potters for Peace in Nicaragua in 1996.
