This fall the MacArthur Foundation named 67-year-old Baltimore artist Joyce J. Scott a 2016 Fellow -– an honor that comes with a $625,000 “genius grant” and international recognition. But for Scott, who has lived her whole life in or near Baltimore’s troubled Sandtown neighborhood, the award presents new challenges while affirming that her socially-provocative art has touched a global nerve. Kojo talks with Scott about her intricate beadwork, jewelry and sculptures — some of which grace our local landmarks — and finds out why this outspoken artist continues to push boundaries though her adventurous body of work.
