Jenny's career has included unique, specialized, industrial projects,
which require artistic sensibility and technical proficiency. She is
currently developing, prototyping and fabricating custom exhaust headers
and systems for the legendary Jaguar XJ-220 to make it compliant with US
emission standards, and to withstand rigorous thermo-shock tests. She has
also played key roles in the construction of two major exhibits at the
American Museum of Natural History. In the early 1990s, she was part of an
elite team of paleontologists, scientists and artists who worked on the
Fossil Hall, rearticulating fossil skeletons to conform to evolving, new
discoveries in those fields. In the late 1990s, she oversaw aspects of the
development and creation of the world's largest diorama and interactive
display of the Dzanga-Sangha rainforest of the Central African Republic in
the Hall of Biodiversity.
A 2000-2001 Faculty Development Grant partially funded her new body of
work, which was part of a one-person retrospective at the Hoboken
Historical Museum in 2002. This exhibit was also funded by the NJ State
Council on the Arts and The NJ Council for the Humanities.
In 2001, her work was featured in the first-ever historical survey, Welded
Sculpture of the Twentieth Century, at the Neuberger Museum.
