Gabrielle Grier is an artist, visionary, facilitator and participant of growth, perspective shifts and intentional responses to social and political change. She is contemporary in the sense that she is ever evolving, while being conscious of what ancestry has taught us. She has spent 18 years partnering with schools, art spaces, and organizations to implement systems change which include strategic vision, programmatic development, and organizational culture that keep the voices of people at the center of the work by using the creative process as a throughline for imagination and innovative design. Recently her work has been in North Minneapolis where she led Juxtaposition Arts, an art and design creative hub, retail shop, and gallery. She holds a Master’s in Education in Youth Development and Leadership, and a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts and Youth Studies, both from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
