The wire artwork of Jill Bonovitz '74 is highlighted in the January/February issue of Sculpture magazine.
 
Author Scott Rothstein writes, "It is as if Bonovitz has found a magic pen capable of rendering in three dimensions."
 
The three-page article features more than a dozen of her sculptures.
 
"With her wire pieces, she offers forms both delicate and subtle that occupy a domain of fragility, exposure, and vulnerability," Rothstein expounds.
 
The article describes her attraction to the Japanese art concept mingei, "a sense of beauty that can be found in the commonplace."
 
Bonovitz is well-known in the art world, and her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries. She serves on the boards of several arts organizations, and is a member of Moore's Visionary Woman Committee, which selects annual scholarship recipients of the Visionary Woman Award.
