Jean Parisi
Jean Parisi is an artist, performer, and educator. For over 35 years she has developed curriculum integrating the arts (visual and performing) with other core subjects as well as taught art-specific workshops in classrooms throughout the Chicago area. She is an inter-disciplinary artist and often combines her skills in her teaching, i.e. introducing drama and creating puppets and painting backdrops; building sculptures for an improvised physical theater; and printmaking and collage work as part of handmade books or 3-D projects. She has led professional development workshops in the arts, inter-disciplinary practices, and collaborative processes for teachers and artists, and has taught Physical Theater at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Jean is a performer in the improvised physical tradition of Commedia dell'Arte presenting her work throughout Chicago, the US, and Italy. She worked with Lionel Bottari on an interactive call-in children's television series for CAN TV including the lively 'couch potato puppets'. She is a promoter of Italian culture, bringing the 'Befana' tradition to Italian Language programs and presenting traditional puppet shows and cantastorie at cultural festivals. Her illustrations for Bottari's Folktale series are a monthly feature in the Fra Noi, a national Italian American Magazine. She exhibits annually at Pilsen Open Studios creating large-scale interactive installations. Jean is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Individual Artist's Fellowship, the Public/Community Service Award from the Illinois Alliance for Arts Education, and several Neighborhood Arts Project grants from the City of Chicago. In 1978 she co-founded the Pros Arts Studio, now known as ElevArte, a community based arts organization in Pilsen where she taught and worked as Executive Director until 2008. Jean Parisi has an MFA in performance from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA in sculpture from the Philadelphia College of Art.
