About the Presenter:
Margaret Jacobs, Akwesasne Mohawk, is a metalsmith known for her steel sculpture and powder-coated jewelry.

Jacobs was born and raised in northern New York and attended Dartmouth College where she graduated with high honors for her thesis work and received the prestigious Perspectives on Design award.
She was named as one of Art New England magazine’s 10 emerging New England artists.
Jacobs has participated in several artist residencies including at Franconia Sculpture Park in Minnesota and the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT where she received a Native American Fellowship through the Harpo Foundation. Recent exhibitions include the Boise Art Museum, the Fruitlands Museum, and Southampton Arts Center. Her work has been featured in various print and online press including at mic.com, elle.com, and Harper’s Bazaar.
