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.
