Project Portfolio

3

The Art Evangelist is a division of the Lange Family portfolio of community art and culture projects in interfaith creative placemaking.  We share a vision to design and deliver initiatives to incubate true celebration of diversity, resiliency, creativity and progress of people and place.  We’re generating, supporting and promoting links between our creative selves, our work, our sustenance, and our place on earth for thriving communities.

We tweet @shaunaleelange and we instagram @theartevangelist.  You can also get a peak at the neo-pointillist artwork of Shauna Lee Lange at Circle Compulsion and the high-color contemporary collage work at Collage Compulsion.

You are welcome here.  We’ve added a few of our larger projects below to demonstrate the range of activities we undertake.  Plug in if you are interested in building new networks and opportunities for art’s restorative and educational opportunities through culture.  We work with and promote organizations, groups, and individuals who are utilizing visual art in and out of faith-based and spiritually sacred concentrated areas. Our working manifesto is:

God and people above art

The growth of the artist in every area of life

Creative process as a privilege and responsibility

Excellence as a common pursuit

Artistic exploration, Art with meaning, Art that lifts

Collaboration and Community

The Art Evangelist also provides leading resources for program and management consultation to organizations involved in art administration, art application, art’s meaning and most importantly, art’s communication.  We generate ideas, we help deliver message, we illuminate strategic plans, we simplify challenges, and we walk through strategies for successful outreach.  We’re problem solvers and creative idea people.  The more important question is, who are you?  What’s important to you and what are you trying to achieve?

Founder Shauna Lee Lange has been working in the field of art, culture, nature, and faith since 2006 and in the field of administration, management and program analysis for over 15 years. After she formed an international think tank for global art professionals, she went on to provide art workshops, formed a Washington DC metropolitan area art advisory, and volunteered with multiple art institutions and organizations.  Today, her team contributes to community public installation art, advocates for the advancement of art programs, and participates in the national art economy.

Lange’s love of insular coastal communities brought about a 2011 relocation to Florida following a full career of Federal military and government analytics with a host of agencies.  She regularly participates in International Urban Sketchers and other physical and online community-based drawing and illustration groups with her self-taught art journals, visual diaries, and sketchbooks; also exhibited nationally.  This involvement is important because it demonstrates mastery in understanding the art world system in conjunction with an individual artist’s challenges.   Journey around on these pages, we have much to offer and more to come.
