Gallery Opening: Donna Jackson

Donna Jackson, is the creator and owner of DMJStudio. It is where she and her team create things that matter to them as women, as people of color, urban dwellers, and a global citizen. Most of the studio work and projects use the power of art to tell stories about different communities in a visually impactful way. To give light to thoughts and ideas that live in the margins and backgrounds but have the potential of changing our world. For the past 20 years, Donna has dedicated her skills as a designer and project manager to develop marketing and promotional materials for urban libraries and non-profits. She is the founder of DMJStudio, a creative studio devoted to creating art projects and events that close gaps between community and culture through public art, exhibits, film, and social collaboration. The studio desires to make art and culture accessible everywhere and to everyone. 

Since 2013, DMJStudio has developed several projects and curated 15 + exhibition including:

  • Doors of Opportunity; a traveling exhibition of doors transformed into art.  

  • In Pursuit of Hope; a film on the 1967 Rebellion.
