Arts Orange County’s 6th annual Creative Edge Lecture featuring Sarah Lewis examines what we can all learn from the world’s greatest innovators. During this 90-minute lecture, Sarah Lewis will offer a new understanding of what sparks creative endeavors and illuminate how embracing our so-called failures can lead to incredible transformation and true breakthroughs.

Lewis recently published The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery, which dissects how our negative or failed experiences can furnish the ground for incredible transformations. She is on the faculty of the Yale School of Art as a critic in both the Photography and Painting/Printmaking Departments. She has served on President Barack Obama’s Arts Policy Committee and was selected for Oprah’s 2010 “Power List.” She is also an active curator, having held positions at both the Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
