Liz Miller is a BIPOC filmmaker and second-generation international fine artist. Dance/Performance art is a primary part of her social art practice. She performs locally and internationally. Her fine art has been shown throughout the US, as well as in Japan, Indonesia, and England. She has a BA in Art and Design from Towson University and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. Miller's work explores the connection between our roots and contemporary America. Textile, ancestry and contemporary black culture are her inspirations. Her work questions hair and body politics, while addressing such issues as appropriation, classism, gender, ethnicity, anti-blackness, equity, identity, and the commodification of the black body. Currently working as an art teacher in the public school system, she has additionally been a teaching artist for the last sixteen years for many non-profits in Baltimore. She owns two businesses: Mural Art Tours Baltimore and Dinner Conversations. Both of these allow her to have much broader conversations about race with the general public.
