The work of artist Jane Gennaro is currently on display in the D-Lobby, right outside of the Precollege Office! The exhibit is called, Feed the Models: The Scissor Drawings of Jane Gennaro.

This exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be up through January 26, 2012.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

Feed the Models: The Scissor Drawings of Jane Gennaro will include Gennaro’s unique scissor drawings, cut from images in fashion magazines, plus sculptural variations with bones and science glass, as well as large-scale prints on metallic surfaces. The artworks are based on Gennaro’s commentary, Feed the Models, which aired on National Public Radio’s (NPR) All Things Considered in 2002. In addition to creating art, Gennaro is a writer, performer, cartoonist, voice-over artist, and illustrator. Common threads that bind her work include storytelling, femininity, and how the human body is presented in the media, which is what led her to question the fashion industry’s use of extremely thin models.
