Joyce Scott is a sculptor, quilter, and performance artist. She’s best known for her figurative beadwork, which often addresses issues of racism and sexism in our culture. While she has art degrees from Maryland Institute College of Art and the Instituo Allende, she also learned about making art from her mother, the quilter Elizabeth Scott. Her most recent exhibit Joyce J. Scott: Harriet Tubman and Other Truths at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton Township, NJ combines beadwork, glass made in Murano, Italy, found objects and other materials.
