Steve Brown is a mixed-media artist and writer exhibiting and publishing in the US and internationally since 2000. Most recently, in the spirit of starting over following a creative hiatus, he has made sculptures using rudimentary shapes, colors and reclaimed wood.

Brown studied at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany. In 2012, he led the relaunch of the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort, MI as its Executive Director. Since 2016, he has been co-founding and managing the Kalamazoo Foundation for Excellence, building an endowment to aid residents in achieving the lives they want for themselves
and their families.
