Glass and social consciousness will meet at noon on Tuesday, March 15 when the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass (AASCG) presents MacArthur Fellow Dr. Joyce J. Scott as the keynote speaker at its next "Fired Up" online event.
Best known for her use of the off-loom, free-form, glass bead weaving technique referred to as the peyote stitch, Scott merges beads, blown glass, and found objects with autobiographical, sociological, and political content to unapologetically confront themes of racism, sexism, violence, inequality, history, and oppression while simultaneously embracing splendor, spirituality, nature, and healing.
Expect the unexpected! Sometimes, her boundless energy and creativity will spill forth in delightful and playful ways, mocking cultural stereotypes.
