Jenny Herrick is an associate professor of art. She has been a Whittier College faculty member since 2007 and director of the Greenleaf Gallery since 2009. She received her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University and her undergraduate degree from Rhode Island School of Design. Both in the classroom and in her studio, Herrick’s focus is on painting and drawing.
During her tenure, Garrett House's programming will include a visiting artist series, a film series, and variety of events involving members of Whittier Law School.
The visiting artist series will bring a wide variety of artists and critics from across the country to campus. They will give in-depth presentations of their work, host question-and-answer sessions, and at time, they will mount exhibitions in the Greenleaf Gallery.
During the film series, the house will host outdoor screenings accompanied in some instances by talks by directors and screenwriters.
Finally, the house will host topical talks, panel discussions, and symposiums on law-related issues featuring Whittier Law professors, as well as guest speakers from the legal community.
