Join us for an informative conversation about the work of extraordinary quilt and fiber artist Elizabeth Talford Scott, mother of artist Joyce J. Scott.

The panel discussion includes acclaimed visionary artist Joyce J. Scott; Lowery Stokes Sims, former museum director and curator; and Leslie King-Hammond, scholar, curator, and founding director of the Center for Race and Culture at the Maryland Institute College of Art. The conversation will be moderated by Annie Carlano, senior curator of craft, design, and fashion at The Mint Museum.
