Autumn Breon works to reimagine global narratives through art and education. A graduate of Stanford, she studied Aeronautics & Astronautics and researched aeronautical astrobiology applications for NASA. As the only woman of color in her cohort and dissatisfied with a lack of representation, Autumn founded STEMgineers Shifting Gears, a STEM-focused extracurricular program based in Watts, CA. Her work to further the dialogue on educational equity led to her frequent travels to the African continent and re-introduction to contemporary art. Autumn Breon now works as an art advisor specializing in contemporary art and contemporary African art, curating and brokering art in Europe, Africa, and the States. Her work has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institution, Aspen Institute, TED, the Obama Foundation, and LA Magazine.
