Scott MacLeod
The Museum of Bitter Sorrows presents “Life Is A Prison, Please Grant Me Release"

Artist reception: Saturday June 5 • 4-6 pm • Free.

CCAI and SMAC are delighted to present this exhibition by San Francisco Bay Area artist Scott MacLeod. The exhibition is the culminating event of his two-week artist residency project at St. Mary's.

The project features a catalog essay by film critic and arts writer Pam Grady. In it she writes: "An exhibit preparator in art and history museums, as well as a performance artist, Scott MacLeod brings an expert eye and a showman's perspective to the gallery. For his St. Mary's installation, MacLeod turns to history and pop culture, filling the space with material and ephemera derived from the documentation of disasters—natural and man made."
