Performance Artist Dread Scott Talks Art and Social Issues

From a public display of being blasted with a firehose, to his earlier work that invited the general population to step right on top of the American flag, Dread Scott has been deemed a controversial artist. This New York based artist definitely made his mark on Chicago. Scott stops by to talk about his work, the way it relates to social issues and how he’s using it to spark change. (Flickr/Jason Marck)
