Steven and William Ladd: Mary Queen of the Universe features meticulously crafted sculpture, drawings, and prints by the fraternal collaborative team Steven and William Ladd. For more than ten years, Steven and William have explored the blurred boundaries between design and fashion, fine art and craft. In a decade of working together, with a concentrated—almost obsessive—fascination with materials and process, they have forged the foundation for a rich and productive creative process from their common early childhood memories and a close familial bond.

Steven and William Ladd: Mary Queen of the Universe is made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Joseph and Sylvia Slifka Foundation and the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation. The publication is made possible by the generous support of The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Fund for Publications and William H. Wright II. Support for the Scrollathon and Artist Residency Project is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, The DeWitt Wallace Fund for Youth at the Long Island Community Foundation,and the Henry Buhl Foundation.
