‘Joyce J. Scott: Truths, Foresights And Persistence’

Be seduced by the colors, technique and beauty, then stay for the message. Joyce J. Scott’s art features themes that are hard to face (racism, sexism, violence), but in this presentation by a MacArthur Fellow (aka “Genius Grant”), she will discuss her artistic goals. “I’d like my art to induce people to stop raping, torturing and shooting each other,” she said. “I don’t have the ability to end violence, racism and sexism. But my art can help them look and think.” —Jo Anne Triplett
