Lectures, Tours, Seminars
Have you ever wondered how a 30-foot-tall sculpture in a public park or street intersection, or a large- scale lightbox in the lobby of an office building got there? Jean Efron, Principal of Jean Efron Art Consultants, will discuss her firm’s work in selecting and placing artworks in both indoor and outdoor public spaces. She will show examples of artworks her firm has installed in these types of locations and others.
Prior to opening her firm, Jean was the Fine Arts Officer of the US General Services Administration. In the Fine Arts Office, she worked to commission works of art for new Federal buildings. Since opening her firm, Jean has commissioned and installed numerous artworks throughout the region on behalf of a wide range of public and private clients. Jean holds degrees in the History of Art and Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and the George Washington University. Proud that Mr. W.C. Handy played at her grandparents’ wedding, Jean is a native of Memphis, Tennessee, and is a long-time resident of Foggy Bottom.
