Lisa Jentonne will be the ninth artist of the 2015 Artist- in-Residence program at Homestead National Monument of America. She will be presenting a program based on her work at the monument on Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 2 p.m. at the Education Center. This is the seventh year of the monument's Artist-in-Residence program.

Lisa Jetonne's work explores issues related to ecology, community, and histories of place and habitat. She works with a wide variety of art materials, including metals, fiber, wood, clay, wax, rubber, and ready-made objects. She often employs techniques of traditional crafts in the creation of conceptual art installations and sculptures. Her conceptual ceramic and mixed-media work have been featured in the book Wood-fired Ceramics: 100 Contemporary Artists, and in a Lark 500 Series art book. Exhibitions of her work have included group shows at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, the California Museum in Sacramento, the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, and a solo exhibition in San Diego. Although she was born in California, and lives and works there now, she lived in the Omaha metro area for nearly a decade and has great affection for Nebraska. Lisa is a full-time artist. This is her third National Park Service artist residency.

For her residency at Homestead National Monument of America, Lisa will be exploring concepts

of "homemaking", related to the shared qualities of human structures and animal structures. Her

public program will include a discussion of her materials and methods, and presentation of some

of her work. Lisa will be working throughout the area of Homestead National Monument of

America October 11 –24, 2015. She enjoys talking and welcomes sharing her creative

abilities with all visitors.
