Based in the San Francisco Bay Area since the early 1990's FUTURE CHORUS founder Lena Wolff is primarily a visual artist who works in a range of material approaches including drawing, paper collage, sculpture, murals, text-based pieces and public art. Her practice extends out of American craft and folk-art traditions, while at the same time being connected to the modern and contemporary movements of geometric abstraction, minimalism, social practice, Op art and feminist art. Her work is in the collections of the One Archive, the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Alameda County Arts Commission, Facebook, the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Iowa Museum and the Zuckerman Museum of Art, among others.
Since the 2016 Presidential election, Wolff is bent on generating new work in a range of artistic disciplines that turns the tide toward a better future for all through poetic, unexpected collaborations that spark hopefulness, empowerment and imagination. She lives with her wife, artist and illustrator of Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide, Miriam Klein Stahl and their daughter in Berkeley, California. FUTURE CHORUS is Wolff's first music and performance project.
