Katherine Jackson is a Brooklyn-based artist who works with drawing, glass and light. Her work has been exhibited extensively in museums, galleries, colleges & universities, and public spaces in New York City, elsewhere in the US, Rome, Berlin, and Venice. Two of her large/scale long term public exhibitions celebrated the centennials of two iconic New York structures, the New York Public Library and the Manhattan Bridge. She was awarded a grant to place a 6 month exhibition addressing immigration in NY's Tenement Museum. A recent installation was included in both the Venice Architectural Biennale 2021, and the Venice Art Biennale 2022.
