After the cancellation of events at the University due to Covid-19, M.F.A. thesis show shifted from on campus to the historic Secrest 1883 Octagonal Barn. The show Fortress includes painting, sculpture, and installation that explore the importance of community in times of trauma and transition. The central piece is a social practice project where Jennifer has worked with the local organization Houses into Homes. The project has relied upon blanket donations from multiple communities to create a large scale installation. After the duration of the exhibition, all donated blankets will be sent to Houses into Homes to help support individuals and families in the Iowa City community.
In consideration for current social distancing practices, the show is available here for digital viewing.
