Aleksandra Kasuba

Lithuanian-born artist Aleksandra Kasuba (1947-2019) came to New York City in 1947. She is best known as a mosaic artist, and her works often cover large surfaces with textural patterns. Kasuba also used textiles, in addition to granite and brick, in her installations. Since 1963, she lived and worked in New York City designing walls for public buildings in brick, marble, and granite. Among them a 4,000 square feet wall in etched granite at the World Trade Center in NY (destroyed in 9/11/2001), a Brick Relief at 53rd St & Lexington Ave. in NYC in 1981, the Old Post Office Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, Container Corp. Headquarters in Chicago IL, and four brick murals adorning the entrances to residence halls on RITs campus in Rochester NY. Her patterned brick mosaics were commissioned for the new Henrietta campus in 1968.
