Scott's exhibit is part of a senior art course that is the capstone of the art degree program at APSU. Both shows consist of several sculptures made of various materials designed to work together as a unified show.

“I wish to use these shows as a forum to present what I see as core issues such as identity and the human condition,” Scott said. “Sculptures can also be used as an effective means of telling the story.”

The design for Scott's second show was developed while he was on a seven-week missionary internship this past summer to three west African countries. He said the natural African beauty inspired his artistic impulse, “reminding me of my interest in natural things.”
