About the artists:
New York-based artists and brothers Steven and William Ladd have been making art together since 2000. Together, they have forged the foundation for a rich and productive creative practice from their common memories, experiences and close familial bond.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, the brothers have developed an expanded practice consisting of text, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance and design. They have combined a range of techniques, forms and practices, forging a unique aesthetic vocabulary. Steven and William have had major solo museum shows at The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, Mingei International Museum, San Diego, Parrish Art Museum, Watermill, NY, Saint Louis Art Museum and their works are included in private and museum collections internationally, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs, LACMA, the Kennedy Center, Agnes Gund Collection, Beth Rudin DeWoody and Shelly and Philip Aarons. They have received awards from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Brooklyn Arts Council and the Barbara and Donald Tober Foundation.
In 2006 Steven and William founded Scrollathon, empowering and engaging underserved communities through artistic collaborations. To date, Scrollathon has served over 10,000 people from diverse ages, backgrounds and abilities to create public artworks across the country.
