Virtual Studio Visit with Artist Jennifer Cecere '73
Jennifer Cecere, Cornell BFA 1973 welcomes you to a virtual tour of her TriBeCa home and Studio. Cecere will discuss 45 years of her studio practice and Public Art career including influences, methods and materials, highlighting key exhibitions and commissions.
Jennifer Cecere has expanded and experimented with the mapping qualities of needlework as a ready-made overlay for organic design in both urban and rural settings.
She has worked with New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, The Guggenheim Museum, Pratt Institute, Socrates Sculpture Park, MoMA PS1, Cooper Hewitt, Addison Gallery of American Art, Central Park Arsenal, and Green Public Art, a New York City Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), and the City of Newport Beach, California.
"It's really important for me to create the feeling of handicraft in the city, My goal is to make visible local history by providing symbols of comfort and community. What could be better?"
In 2015, Cecere's suspended sculpture, Chandelier, was installed by the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. The station is located at the junction of two dynamic neighborhoods: Little Italy, one of Cleveland's most old-world neighborhoods, which remains traditionally Italian; and University Circle, which is home to the Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Institute of Art, MOCA Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic, and University Hospitals of Cleveland. Designed by Cleveland-based City Architecture, the station is surrounded by historic structures, newer buildings, and public spaces designed by firms that include Farshid Moussavi Architecture, James Corner Field Operations, Frank Gehry, CannonDesign, Phillip Johnson, César Pelli, and CMG Landscape Architecture, among others.
