Ep. 123 Hattie Marshall-Duncan: Southern Artist Showcase

Self-taught sculptor, Hattie Marshall-Duncan of Jackson, Tenn., turns common household items and found objects that are often overlooked into distinguished masterpieces. Her work is reflective of her African American community and family. At the reception for an exhibit of her work at Discovery Park, Marshall-Duncan shared what inspires her work and the unusual technique that results in these unique pieces of art. She was the recipient of the 2019 Tennessee Governor’s Arts Award and her art is displayed in numerous museums and galleries.
