Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum
1661 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
1st Floor Floor Plan
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.
