Veronica Jackson makes connections across art, architecture, and design as compiled in her multi-decade portfolio in interpretive exhibition and communication design. She honed her conceptual and practical skills by working on culturally significant and historically prominent projects. Examples range from African Voices at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History to Discovering the Civil War at the National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, DC.
Jackson brings a constellation of capabilities to each endeavor: from communicating to diverse audiences to creating inviting and engaging experiences that promote discovery. She is also a dedicated proponent for intellectual accessibility in the visual arts. Jackson holds firm that once exposed to it, art is a transformative experience.
With the intent to record, interpret, and make aware the impact visual culture has on our daily lives, Jackson received a MA in Visual and Critical Studies from California College of the Arts, San Francisco. During her tenure at CCA her work examined identity, agency, and empowerment as performed by African American women in the visual landscape. Her current emphasis—a text based visual art and installation practice—critically elucidates the visualization of gender and race in America, with a special focus on the portrayal, perception, and legacy of black women in popular media both past and present.
