The MFA in Applied Craft and Design welcomes Joyce Scott as part of the 2013-2014 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Renowned as the “Queen of Beadwork,” Joyce J. Scott is a versatile artist from Baltimore, Maryland. She is a printmaker, weaver, sculptor, performance artist, and educator, but she is probably most well known for her work in jewelry, beadwork, and glass. Her art, in whatever form, reflects her take on all aspects of American popular culture, her ancestry, and the immediate world of her neighborhood.

Her pieces serve as a commentary for issues regarding race, politics, sexism, and stereotypes. She received her B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art and M.F.A. from the Instituto Allende. Her work is in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Mint Museum, Spencer Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
