Janet Van Fleet

Auto Industry Humpty Dumpty

Cabot, Vermont

Janet is a Vermont mixed-media artist who makes sculptures from natural materials such as old wood, as well as objects that are man made, but had a prior life, so are weathered and worn. Her work often concerns itself with social and political issues, such as racism, sexism, poverty, and the environment.

“...I liked the idea of a project that used this ubiquitous found object. And then the amazing meltdown of the auto industry came upon us suddenly-and provided the perfect concept for the piece.”Janet Van Fleet
