ABOUT THE JUROR
Jeannine Falino explores the intersection of design, craft, and art in American culture. She began her career at the Yale University Art Gallery and moved to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she later became the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of Decorative Arts. She led the publication of Silver of the Americas, 1600–2000 (MFA, Boston, 2007), and co-curated Artistic Luxury: Fabergé – Tiffany – Lalique, (Cleveland Museum of Art, 2008) featuring these legendary firms in an international context. Following her move to New York, she produced the major survey exhibition and catalogue Crafting Modernism: Mid-century American Art and Design (Museum of Arts and Design, 2011), and What Would Mrs. Webb Do? A Founder’s Vision (MAD, 2014), an exhibition on the role of advocacy and philanthropy in American craft. At the Museum of the City of New York, she co-curated Gilded New York: Design, Fashion & Society(MCNY, 2013-17). New York Silver, Then & Now brought contemporary artists and designers in dialogue with historic silver (Museum of the City of New York, June 2017-May 2018). Her exhibition on jewelry designer Betty Cooke opens at the Walters Art Museum in autumn, 2020. Jeannine is a critic in the Ceramics Department at the Rhode Island School of Design, and an adjunct at Parsons, The New School, where she teaches the history of ceramics and American craft.
