Joyce Scott!

One of my favorite artists!

Her pieces serve as a commentary for issues regarding race, politics, sexism, and stereotypes. Of her own work, Scott has said, "I believe in messing with stereotypes...It's important for me to use art in a manner that incites people to look and then carry something home - even if it's subliminal..." She received her B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art and M.F.A. from the Instituto Allende. Her work is in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Mint Museum, Spencer Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum
