The Art and Advocacy of Joyce J. Scott
BioPark tenants are invited to the presentation "The Art and Advocacy of Joyce J. Scott"
Joyce J. Scott is an artist, sculptor, quilter, performance and installation artist, lecturer, and educator. Named a MacArthur Fellow in 2016, Scott is best known for her figurative sculptures and jewelry using free form, off-loom bead weaving techniques. One piece may be constructed with thousands of glass seed or pony beads, and incorporate other found objects such as glass, quilting, and leather.
In 2018, she was hailed for working in a new medium — a mixture of soil, clay, straw, and cement — for a sculpture meant to disintegrate and return to the earth.
Her works can be seen at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis, the Mint
Museum of Art in Charlotte, N.C., and the Smithsonian Institution, among others.
