The real Jayson Scott Musson speaks on Artblog Radio

Profanity and insults are just distractions in Jayson Scott Musson’s posters, screeds and rants. The real message is the human comedy of rules, categories, identities, stereotypes, pretensions and social class and race. In this interview he talks about trying to solve his problems as an artist and as an equal opportunity irritant to the politically correct. Musson has a solo show of his work at Marginal Utility Feb. 4- March 27, 2011.
