Studio Artist Program

Jill Frank

Jill Frank is a visual artist working primarily in photography. She received her BA in Photography from Bard College and her MFA in Studio Art from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has shown nationally and internationally, and selected solo exhibitions include Contemporary Art Workshop, Chicago; Golden Gallery, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Frank relocated to Atlanta in 2011 to teach at Georgia State University. Frank’s work deals with the negotiation and indeterminacy of dominant social and cultural narratives. Her current work investigates American “rites of passage,” and how they inform cultural status symbols and identity formation.
