Jeanine Briggs


Transfigurations at the de Young Museum
de Young Museum, Kimball Education Gallery*, 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, San Francisco, California, 94118

June 30 – August 1
Wednesdays – Sundays, 1 – 5 p.m.
Fridays, 6 – 8:45 p.m.

Be prepared to see different things and see things differently as you encounter the figurative art that Jeanine Briggs creates from reused and repurposed materials: life-sized human figures, oversized chess individuals, small fertility and guardian figures, and various exotic life forms that inhabit our living planet—in reality or imagination.

Just as Jeanine draws inspiration from nature and from cultural interpretations of the human experience, she welcomes viewer questions and comments, which in turn influence the direction of her work.

Jeanine invites all visitors to engage in the creation of an early-21st century Detritussaurus.
Participants will bring this large-scale, colorful, and tactile work of public art into being from a surprising array of discarded items common to our everyday lives.

Friday, July 30, 6 – 8:30 p.m.
Closing Reception in the Kimball Education Gallery
