Points Of View With Dr. Mary E. Weems says
Baltimore-based artist, Joyce J. Scott creates complex beaded sculptures that balance exquisite artistry with political and sociological content referencing African-American and African history, gender inequality, and human violence. Part lecture, part performance, part interactive experience, this special event features author/poet/playwright Dr. Mary E. Weems, who will use Scott’s groundbreaking sculpture, Lynched Tree, as a springboard to discuss these very important topics.

In addition, this program will include a monologue from Weems’s play Purses (Karamu House, April 2015) along with an interactive writing exercise with audience members to draw new meaning from Scott’s work.

$8 Advance | $10 Door | Members Free. Tickets/Reservations can be made at http://shop.mocacleveland.org/Events.aspx.
