Scott received his MFA in 2021 from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. He grew up in Madison Wisconsin where he received his undergraduate degree in Philosophy from UW Madison. His ceramic work has been exhibited around the country including Design Miami Podium in 2020 and at the 2019 National Conference for Education in the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) in Minneapolis. In June 2020 Scott completed a photo essay of Black Lives Matter protesters in Philadelphia (during a period when he could not work in the studio due to the pandemic) that was featured in The New Yorker: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/06/22/a-photographer-on-the-front-lines-of-philadelphias-protests. He also recently completed a mural in Philadelphia titled “Stay Golden” in collaboration with Gerald A. Brown and Roberto Lugo.
During his one-week residency from October 17-21 Scott will work in the UT School of Art Ceramics Studios, meeting with various classes, presenting his work and methods, including the use of screenprinting on clay.
His visit is supported by School of Art Programming Committee and the UT Potters. For more information on her visit, contact Professor Beauvais Lyons (email@example.com).
