MAM Conversations: Joyce J. Scott

Joyce J. Scott is best known for creating intricately beaded sculptures and jewelry that draw inspiration from West African Yoruba weaving techniques and Native American beadwork. Scott confronts issues of racism, sexism, and cultural stereotypes with work that is often personal, and seeks to provide spiritual healing in the face of all that divides us. Join MAM Conversations as we visit Scott in her Baltimore studio to find out what she’s been working on over the past few months.  The conversation will be moderated by Patterson Sims, former director of the Montclair Art Museum and co-curator of the major survey exhibition Joyce J. Scott: Harriet Tubman and Other Truths which was featured at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey in 2017-18.    

MAM Conversations presented by the Babson Lecture Series will take place on Thursdays at 6 p.m. from June 11 through August 28 via Zoom Webinars. Closed captioning is provided. For more information, contact Alison Van Denend, Assistant Curator, at

This series is funded, in part, by a generous perpetual gift from the Julia Norton Babson Memorial Fund.
