Michael Sylvan Robinson

SylvanSylvanBaltimore artist and teacher, Michael Sylvan Robinson, is a Queer man with a lifelong commitment to Feminism. Finding inspiration in the iconography and symbolism of our ancestral artists, he re-examines the role of Artist as mystic and messenger. He has led workshops across the country, in artistic and spiritual spaces, in academic and educational settings. In 2008, he earned an M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College, and he has a B.A. from Bennington College (1989) with an emphasis in dance, drama, and literature. Robinson’s interdisciplinary art practice investigates the embodiment of spirit within a discourse of gender and sexual identity; it is rooted in the mediums of mixed media and textiles, ritual drama and installation, poetry and creative nonfiction. Originally a costume designer and performance artist from New York City, his art has been shown in galleries and exhibitions including the National Queer Arts Festival in San Francisco (2009).
