Jenny Lee

JENNY LEE is a sculptor and teacher. She is a graduate of The Cooper Union and teaches welding and sculpture in the Fine Arts Department at Pratt Institute. She has exhibited extensively in galleries, arts organizations and museums. She is a member of the Sculptors Guild, and her work is in several important public and private collections, including The Brooklyn Museum and the de Menil Collection. Representative galleries include Herstand, Borgenicht and Shapolsky.

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.
