Brianna Mims

BFA Class of 2019

Created her own concentration in civic engagement


Mims’ #jailbeddrop installation and performance at the California African American Museum, which began as her senior project, is just a fraction of her artistic and activist breadth. Mims recently shot a campaign for Athleta. She recently traveled to Honduras, to participate in human rights education workshops and assisting lawyers. She recently relaunched and hopes to tour her iteration of #jailbeddrop. She also plans on collaborating with other artists like d. Sabela grimes and Patrisse Cullors, as well as with grassroots organizations. Eventually, she would like to run arts programming in a refugee camp in Jordan.

“I want to use my work to be civically engaged, create spiritual and healing experiences, and understand how myself and others think and approach life,” she said.
