Renowned American artist Joyce Kozloff was a major figure in both the Pattern and Decoration and the Feminist art movements of the 1970s. In 1979, she began to focus on public art, increasing the scale of her installations and expanding the accessibility of her art to reach a wider audience. Kozloff has since executed a number of major commissions in public spaces across the country. Since the early 1990s, Kozloff has utilized mapping as a device for consolidating her enduring interests in history, culture, and the decorative and popular arts. Recipient of countless awards, Kozloff's artworks are in the permanent collection of many global institutions, from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, to MoMA, LACMA, Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian, among many others.
