About the Artist

Jennifer Towner (Seattle) received 2008 GAP Award funding for the framing of twelve prints from an upcoming show in Chicago. The exhibition was the result of a documentary television series called Artstar in which six graduates from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago were followed as they made their transition from graduate school to the real world. Jennifer’s project, I Heart Ann, stemmed from her love of “The Today Show” and features numerous prints that capture her in the background of “The Today Show” holding a sign that incorporated Ann Curry’s name. Her project, along with the five other graduates was on display at the Scope Art Fair in Miami.
