An Interior Decorated: Joyce Kozloff

August 15, 1980 – March 1, 1981

Museum: Renwick Gallery

Location: 1st Floor

Inspired by exotic and intricate motifs of Egyptian, Islamic and American Indian cultures, the New York artist transforms one of the Renwick's galleries into a striking array of color and pattern. Decorating every surface except the ceiling, she utilizes banners, mosaic tile pilasters, and a 14 x 10-1/2-foot ceramic floor piece, handpainted with hundreds of stars, hexagons, and other shapes.
