Jennifer Love SDA Representative B.C. has written the following:
"Jason Pollen was a founding member and for many years the President of the Surface Design Association.  He was on the faculty of the Royal College of Art, London, Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute before serving as Chair of the fiber department at Kansas City Art Institute.  Jason exhibits his fabric constructions internationally and is widely known for his innovations in surface design.  He has designed textiles for dozens of fashion and home furnishing firms and regularly collaborates as the scenic designer for the Kansas City Ballet.  He was named Fellow by the American Crafts Council in 2006. "
