Jennifer Kane is an artist, arts advocate, and guide from Los Angeles, CA and currently resides in Joshua Tree, California. Through a multidisciplinary, adaptive art practice Ms. Kane creates opportunities for communities, both embedded and momentary, to gather in unexpected environments, inspiring a deeper understanding and reconnection to self, other, and place. This is the landscape of her work, and the paintings, drawings, and writing she produces explore and embody these evolving relationships.
In 2016, Kane received an MFA in Public Practice from Otis College of Art and Design. Currently she serves as the Executive Director of Arts Connection – the Arts Council of San Bernardino County and coordinates a Volunteer Art Program for The Joshua Tree Art Innovation Laboratory (JT Lab), an NEA funded arts initiative, hosted by Joshua Tree National Park. She is also a contributing writer to the Mojave Project and KCET Artbound. Her paintings are held in private collection across the United States, and she still spends part of every summer guiding mountain expeditions in the Sierra.
