Bonnie Levinson’s career spans over three decades working in the arts with cultural institutions.
Over the last seven years Bonnie has been developing her studio art practice. She is a multidisciplinary artist, working in mixed media, photography and paint. A playwright/performer and collaborator, her attention is in the intersection of these diverse yet complementary forms, and their influence upon each other.

She works with cultural institutions creating public arts programming, and curating exhibitions. Currently she works with the National Parks for New York Harbor Conservancy as the Cultural Consultant and Curator for the Visual Arts for Federal Hall in New York City. This past year she has been developing an artist in residence program with the students at Making Waves Academy resulting in permanent art for the campus of this charter school in Richmond, CA.
