Roar, Lion, Roar

Thank you so much to my alma mater for featuring me! I’m also in their “Alumni in the News” article—honored to be included alongside Emmy nominees et al. (And on their Instagram page two rows directly below me is Obama.)

Also, thank you all for the birthday wishes!

Lastly, this is the final week to see the group exhibition I’m in, Sweet Home Chicago! The show, which features 78(!) local artists, is up through this Friday, September 1, in the 4th Floor Gallery of the Bridgeport Art Center.

My 2014 photo Petal—shot on my iPhone 5s—is currently on view in the group exhibition Sweet Home Chicago at the Bridgeport Art Center! Thank you again to curator Marci Rubin for choosing my work and for putting together a great show. Here’s an installation shot she took of the wall that includes my piece (the MCA’s spiral staircase!):

If you missed the opening last month, no worries; there’s another reception this Friday, August 18, 7-10pm, during BAC’s 3rd Fridays Open Studios event! RSVP here. Enjoy the works of over 70 artists in this exhibit alone, and even more throughout the building!

Also, today’s my birthday! Here’s a candid of me for HuffPost’s “Culture Shifters: The Change-Makers We Are Watching in 2023 | Jenny Lam Turned Down Disney At Age 8 — And Carved Her Own Path As An Artist” feature article written by Yue Li and photographed in Chinatown by Taylor Glascock:

In lieu of birthday gifts: Consider becoming a patron of Artists on the Lam! Or, if you would like a gift in the form of art, consider collecting a work or two from my shop!
