Jennifer Rabin

Visual Arts Lead

Jennifer (she/her) will focus on the day-to-day needs of the visual arts programs at MAC including administration, instruction, and facility needs. She is a writer, sculptor, and arts activist. Her writing has appeared in Kenyon Review, the Sun, the Rumpus, Harvard Review, and Hyperallergic. She was the visual arts writer for Willamette Week and is a contributing writer for Oregon ArtsWatch.

Fifteen years into her writing career, she took her first sculpture class on a lark and has never looked back. Since then, her studio practice has been full of adventures: from bronze pouring to slip casting, wood working to welding, dry felting to stone carving. She is happiest wearing coveralls and safety goggles, surrounded by other creative people.

She’s been active in Portland’s visual arts world for over ten years and is passionate about making art spaces welcoming to all members of the community. She can’t wait to meet you.
