From 1994 to 2009, Lauren Camp focused her creative energies in the realm of visual art. Her solo exhibit, “The Fabric of Jazz: A Tribute to the Genius of American Music,” traveled to museums in ten cities from 2004 to 2007, including gigs at the American Jazz Museum and the Delta Blues Museum. Other solo exhibits include “Flinch: A Study of Your Self” and two career retrospectives.
Images of her artwork have appeared on book and magazine covers and used as set decoration for Sony Pictures. Among many important group exhibitions, she showed in the invitational Fiber Art Biennial in Chieri, Italy; “Meander,” an exhibit of works about the Santa Fe River; and a human rights survey exhibit entitled “Roots of Racism: Ignorance and Fear.”
Her artwork is in the permanent collections of The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma; St. Vincent Children’s Hospital of Indiana; and the United States Embassies in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan and Bamako, Mali, among other public institutions. She has created large-scale, community-based commissions for the Jesus Rodarte Cultural Center (Greeley, Colorado) and Kaiser Permanente Hospital (Panorama City, California).
Since pivoting fully to poetry and teaching, Lauren Camp has published five books, most recently Took House (Tupelo Press, 2020). Her literary honors include the Dorset Prize and finalist citations for the Arab American Book Award, Housatonic Book Award, North American Book Award, and New Mexico-Arizona Book Award. Her work has been supported by fellowships from Black Earth Institute, Storyknife Writers Retreat, Denver Botanic Gardens, and the Taft-Nicholson Center.
