Place is the Space: Jill Downen

Fall 2013


Jill Downen (b. 1967, Belleville, Illinois; lives and works in Kansas City and St. Louis) 
Downen’s work incorporates surfaces, flaws, and other elements of a space to create organic forms. Her project for Place is the Space, titled Beauty Mark, will feature the seaming of a long fissure in CAM’s concrete floor with gold leaf as well as the reconstruction of a wall sculpture that she created at the Museum nearly a decade ago.
