Jody Clowes is the director of the Academy's James Watrous Gallery and arts editor for Wisconsin People & Ideas magazine. Jody's favorite exhibition projects emphasize connections between contemporary art and other disciplines and issues, from environmental concerns to social and economic history, technological change, and the history of craft. She has years of experience developing and curating exhibits, designing public programs, and writing about art, including senior positions at Milwaukee Art Museum, Detroit's Pewabic Pottery, and the UW-Madison's Design Gallery.
Jody has a B.A. in Art and Art History from Rutgers University and an M.A. in material culture studies from the University of Delaware's Winterthur Museum program. An eclectic reader, mad gardener, and stubbornly improvisational cook, she is happiest with her hands in the dirt.
