Nicolas Lampert is a Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist and author whose work focuses on themes of social justice and ecology. His artwork is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and over 70 Special Collections. Collectively, he works with three groups: the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative – a worker-owned printmaking cooperative of forty-plus artists in North America that formed in 2007, Voces de los Artistas (an art affinity group with Voces de la Frontera), and the Art Build Workers – a group that organizes art builds with movements, specifically the National Education Association – the largest union in the United States. Lampert is also an Art Organizer with Voces de la Frontera, serving on the Communication Department. His first book A People’s Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements was published by The New Press in 2013 and is part of the People’s History Series edited by Howard Zinn. Lampert is the Area Head for the Community Arts program in the PSOA Department of Art and Design.
