Jennifer Rabin is a writer, an artist, an arts writer, and an arts activist.

Her writing has appeared in The Sun, Harvard Review, Visual Art Source, Hyperallergic,  Drain Magazine, Oregon Humanities, Bitch, and The Rumpus.

Her conceptual art has been exhibited in Portland, OR and in South Carolina. She is the recipient of a Regional Arts and Culture grant in support of her memoir in progress All the Reverence in Our Hearts, about art’s ability to transform grief and to shepherd us through the darkest times in our life.

In her capacity as a visual arts writer, she champions underrepresented voices, challenges the mystique of the white-box art world, and makes a case for why the arts are essential to all of our lives.

She is the founder of Art Passport PDX, a free city-wide art program to get Portlanders more engaged in the visual arts, and Artists Resist, a national campaign to oppose the defunding of the NEA and the NEH.
