Alice Adams

Alice Adams is known for her sculpture and site-specific land art in the 1970s, as well as for her major public art projects in transit systems, airports, university campuses, and other urban sites throughout the United States since 1986. Her earlier work in tapestry and woven forms was integral to the American fiber art movement. She sees her practice as a way of drawing people into spaces that are initially familiar but later appear new. Except for two years spent in France, Adams has lived in New York City, traveling for collaboration and consultation on public art projects in the United States and abroad.
