the vision

Toni Scott’s exhibitions and installations weave together artistically powerful stories presented through installations, multi-media, photography, painting, sculpture and digital ingenuity, often referencing fraught histories. "Learning of my multicultural family heritage has inspired me to give life to the lost images and stories of history."  Scott's "Bloodlines" series is a testament to her goals to inspire, educate, heal, engage, stimulate dialog, and bring together diverse cultures. "In every work, I create resides a commitment to themes that build and enrich humanity." Scott’s work has been awarded and celebrated internationally. In 2012, she created a solo mixed media installation, Bloodlines, for the California African American Museum.

In 2015, she was selected as the solo artist for the Dame Jillian Sackler International Artists Exhibition Program, a prestigious invitation to install and exhibit her work in the Arthur M. Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology at Peking University, in Beijing China. In 2016, she was featured as the First International Artist to exhibit a solo exhibition at the Changzhou Museum in Jiangsu Province of China.   2018, Toni exhibited a solo exhibit, "As warm with the Spirits of All Ages Here....", at the UNC at Chapel Hill, Sonja Haynes Stone Center.  Currently her work is on exhibit at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Peking University, China for the 25th Anniversary of the Sackler Museum. She is featured in the recently published book "Creative Souls: African American Artists in Greater Los Angeles," by UCLA Professor Paul Von Blum and on exhibit at the Watt's Towers Art Center in Los Angeles.  

Fall 2018, Toni has been selected as Artist in Residence at the Squire Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. and the prestigious CCS Artist in Residence, at UCSB. Knowledge acquired from the University of Southern California and Otis College of Art and Design, along with her natural talent and skill, have made Toni Scott the internationally renowned artist that she is today.    She holds an MFA from the University of California at Santa Barbara, 2018.  She is a Citizen of the Muscogee Creek Nation, and part of a global traveling exhibition of Muscogee Creek Artists.
