Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist Lecture: Jessie Hemmons


5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
School of Art, Art History & Design, (402) 472-5522,
Jessie Hemmons completed her master’s degree in clinical and counseling psychology in 2011 from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia. She worked as a psychotherapist for a short time and has spent most of her professional career as a behavioral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania.

Jessie started yarnbombing in 2011, covering urban objects with knitting in downtown Philadelphia. She began making these knitted installations to show the feasibility of using more diverse mediums in street art, thrust passersby out of their everyday urban experience, and improve accessibility to art in the community.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
