Jean Krasno, b 1943, Evanston, IL, Based in Athens, VT
I am a painter, print maker, and sculptor with a large body of work created over many years. My latest series is a set of collages made of torn, old lithographs combined with oil pastel and pencil based on images of jazz artists and the lyrics of well-known jazz songs. My sculpture combines bronze images with wood. I have recently been returning also to oil painting on canvas that depict various figurative images.
Jean E. Cullander Krasno was born in Evanston, Illinois on July 5, 1943, and graduated from Evanston Township High School in 1961. She has a BFA from the University of Illinois with a major in painting (1965) where she graduated summa cum laude; an MFA from Stanford University in Art with an emphasis on painting and printmaking (1967); and a PhD in international politics from the City University of New York Graduate Center (1994). She made the switch into international relations because of her concern over the spread of nuclear weapons and the danger they presented to her own children and people around the world. Her dissertation is on Brazil’s secret nuclear weapons program that was ended in 1991. She is a full-time, tenured member of the faculty as a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at the City College of New York (CCNY). She is also a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University.
