Joyce J. Scott: My Best Voice is an Artist

8/25/2019 / 1:30pm

The Art Center welcomes artist Joyce J. Scott for a candid talk about her life and work.

They say, talk about what you know…that’s why I use myself and my career as a visual/performance artist as my platform. Being born in the 1940s and now living in the first quarter of the 21st century as an African American woman, I have a lot to say about what I’ve experienced. It all converges in my artwork. My joys and challenges, fears and evolution blend. Many feel artists live only for their work. However I, like many, use my practice to express my citizenship and commitment to change by speaking through it, of our social and political existence. My work’s beauty is a lure. I hone my skills because I believe in my craftsmanship and the message it can deliver through its excellence.
Joyce J. Scott
