Jane Freeman's Small World

Jane Freeman's 1995 miniature construction of a room in a single room occupancy hotel.

Artist Jane Freeman, a Harrison Street resident in Tribeca for more than four decades, is a painter who, for many years, also worked as an extraordinarily gifted miniaturist.

From the mid-1980s to 2000, Freeman built dozens of miniature dioramas and constructions out of found objects, on the themes of art, architecture, music, literature, and popular culture.

Freeman's work has been exhibited internationally and is in corporate and private collections. Her book, "The Art of the Miniature: Small Worlds and How to Make Them," was published in 2002.

In the fall of last year, the Mendez SoHo Salon Series invited Freeman to talk about her work as an artist of miniatures. Here is a video of her appearance.
