Edmund Lewandowski was an American Precisionist artist who was often exhibited in the Downtown Gallery alongside other artists such as Charles Sheeler, Charles Demuth, Georgia O'Keeffe, Ralston Crawford, George Ault, and Niles Spencer. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and he attended the Layton School of Art from 1931 until his graduation in 1934.

Milwaukeeans may know Lewandowski's work as it is prominently displayed along the Lakefront at the War Memorial Center. Lewandowski was recommended by the architect Eero Saarinen to provide the ornamental mosaic mural for the city-facing side of the War Memorial Center. During the artist’s long career, Lewandowski experimented with a variety of media, including glass and tile in his mosaic murals, like the one on the War Memorial Center. He produced eight major mosaics between 1953 and 1979—including ones at Marquette University, the Allen-Bradley Company Building in Milwaukee, and the Flint Institute of Arts in Michigan.
