With her talent for flawlessly intersecting architecture and exhibition design, it’s clear why Jame draws her inspiration from solving challenging problems, creative people and an inherent need for beauty. "I enjoy making or learning something new every day." After a tenure of over 12 years at the National Gallery of Art, Jame has a wealth of exhibition design experience and knowledge of objects in a variety of material types and scales, which makes her a valuable member SmithGroup’s Cultural practice. A few notable projects include the new Museum of the Pop Culture's New York museum, the Lumpkin’s Slave Jail Site / Devil’s Half Acre interpretive site, and planning for the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona. Throughout her career, Jame has always believed in pushing the boundaries of style and art. "Go boldly, as artists and designers we must look for every opportunity to make our world more beautiful and have more meaning," she notes. There’s no doubt that Jame would be creating regardless of where her path took her. But if she couldn’t be an architect? Jame concludes, "I’d be in my studio in the woods making art or perfecting my welding skills."
