I have been appointed Assistant Professor in Sculpture at the Kansas City Art Institute. I have relocated to Kansas City and am enjoying the community of colleagues and students. It is an honor to return to the school where I studied painting / printmaking and work with a new generation of artists.

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has named Jill Downen among its Fellows for 2010. The 180 fellows were selected from about 3,000 applicants representing artists, scientists, and scholars in the United States and Canada. “Guggenheim Fellows are appointed on the basis of impressive achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment.” (The New York Times Friday April 16, 2010, A5). Downen’s project will involve research between St. Louis and New York and culminate in the exhibition of a new site-specific installation.
