Jenn Hampton (Juicy Jenn)
Jenn Hampton is an arts and music curator. She is the part owner and co-director and curator of Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. She is also the owner of Little Death Collective, the creative team behind the Asbury Lanes, also in Asbury Park, NJ.
Jenn attended the Indiana University of Pennsylvania where she studied printmaking and theater arts. She spent many years pursing acting, art and documentary film production after college.
Her acting pursuits lead her to moving to New Jersey in 2000. She re-located to Asbury Park to help create and build Asbury Lanes. In the eleven years at Asbury Lanes, Jenn helped to create a national and international fan base of performers, bands and burlesque acts, in addition to creating an innovative gallery program that focused on young art collectors. The success of Asbury Lanes helped to create a destination in Asbury Park for music lovers, artists and performers from all over the country.
Parlor Gallery is located in Asbury Park and have been open since 2009. We curate 10-12 exhibitions a year, in addition to exhibiting at art fairs in NYC and Miami.
In addition to her curation at Parlor Gallery and Asbury Lanes, she has curated exhibitions for museums, galleries and alternative spaces.
Jenn is currently working with Madison Marquette, one of the lead developers in Asbury Park, to create a public arts program that showcases murals and public art on the Asbury Park Boardwalk called the Wooden Walls Project.
