Jane Greengold creates visual art in a wide variety of media, both studio work and public commissions. Her conceptually-based public projects are mostly site-specific and intended to provide a sense of place.
She has done permanent public installations including works for the MTA Arts for Transit progam at the Grand Army Plaza Station in Brooklyn and the MetroNorth station in Pleasantville; the NYC Percent for Art Program at a high school in Brooklyn and a Fire/EMS Station in Queens; and temporary projects for the centennials of the Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central Terminal. For many of the last twelve years she has done an annual temporary site-specific Halloween installation of 100 individually carved pumpkins impaled on a sharply pointed fence in Cobble Hill Brooklyn.
In addition to public art projects, Jane continues to make abstract paintings on paper, and abstract and representational work on modules, such as rolling pins, that can be manipulated by the viewer. She also maintains a parallel career as a public interest lawyer.
