John Lewis is a curator, an award-winning writer, and editor-at-large at Baltimore magazine, where he’s profiled the likes of John Waters, and Ira Glass, shepherded pieces by David Simon, Anne Tyler, and Lucille Clifton into print, and explored possibilities for treating the publication as a curated space (most notably, with 2005’s “See Hear” multi-media project). Lewis has written for many publications, including The Oxford American and Rolling Stone. His work has been anthologized in both Europe (Histoires de Musiciens) and the U.S (The Oxford American Book of Great Music Writing, John Barth: A Body of Words). Lewis has been a guest lecturer at Goucher College and Johns Hopkins University and been interviewed by media outlets such as NPR and USA Today. He is currently the Assistant Director at the American Visionary Art Museum.
