Steven and William Ladd

September 4 – February 5, 2023

Steven and William Ladd create collaboratively, pulling from childhood stories and experiences to transform materials, such as textiles and beads, into microcosms of memory. This exhibition includes past works and new works being exhibited for the first time, including a work created with members of the Sarasota community during Scrollathon.
