Jeanne grew up on a farm in Hastings, Michigan, taught in a two-room school house in Hopkins, Michigan, got married and moved to Detroit in 1972. In the 1980’s, she discovered art-making, began to translate the visual world into her own terms, and earned an MFA from Wayne State University. Jeanne uses sewing as a way to move ideas and images, a type of visual problem solving that keeps the artistic process flexible. In 2017 she was awarded a Kresge Fellowship.

In the historic room, you’ll find works from the Scarab Club’s permanent collection, including an original Robert Hopkin. Hopkin was one of Detroit’s leading painters in the mid to late 19th century in Detroit, producing seascapes, landscapes and decorative works, including the interior of the Detroit Opera House (1869). In 1907, the Detroit Museum of Art held an exhibition in his honor, at which time his fellow artists founded the Hopkin Club, which later became the Scarab Club.
