Artist Tasha Lewis leads a workshop on the creation of her cyanotype butterfly sculptures, part of her BIFA installation entitled The Swarm. The artist along with community volunteers will then unleash her spectacular swarm and create swirling formations of colorful winged creatures throughout Breckenridge.

Tasha Lewis is an artist originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, whose sculptural and installation works combine the historic photographic process of cyanotype with paper sculpture, stitching, magnets, and ephemeral public art. Lewis received her BAs in English Literature and Studio Arts from Swarthmore College in 2012, and has studied at the Firenze Arte Visive in Florence, Italy and the Qasid Institute in Amman, Jordan. She has exhibited her work in Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Newark, New York City, Cambridge, Sarasota, and Grand Rapids, with recent exhibitions at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Cambridge Art Association in Massachusetts, and the Spartanburg Art Museum in South Carolina. Her works have been featured in British Vogue and The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes by Christopher James. Having recently completed a residency at Gallery Aferro in Newark, NJ, Lewis currently lives and works in the New York metropolitan area.
