Juror - Lena Vigna
Currently Curator of Exhibitions at the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin, Lena Vigna has a particular interest in the contemporary fields of adornment, sculpture, fiber, and installation. Lena has curated numerous solo and group exhibitions and written several essays that explore issues relevant to contemporary art and society.
Recent areas of investigation include political garments and accessories, jewelry that reconsiders the past in the present, contemporary chandeliers, extreme wearable and non-wearable garments, lace, and the relationship between jewelry and painting (the subject of a 2012 article in Metalsmith).
Lena was awarded a 2006 Craft Research Fund Project Grant from the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design for an exhibition about contemporary approaches to lace (Laced with History) and received an Art Jewelry Forum Grant in 2009 for Adornment and Excess: Jewelry in the 21st Century. Named one of the top craft curators under 50 in a non-published museum survey, Lena is also a big fan of vintage clothes and custom cars.
