Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Scott’s installations, exhibitions and individual works largely explore her African American, Native American, and European heritage. Her acclaimed installation “Bloodlines,” a visual exploration of American slavery, debuted at the California African American Museum in 2009 and later traveled overseas. In 2016, Scott became the first international artist with a solo exhibition at the Changzhou Museum in Jiangsu Province of China with “The Circle and Cycle of Life,” focusing on Indigenous culture, feminism and technological advancements of the 20th century.
In October 2020, CSUDH announced the strategic partnership with Scott, which will include developing innovative academic, artistic, and co-curricular endeavors that engage the CSUDH community in the creation of new works and in the critical examination of racial and cultural themes that resonate with the student body and the nation-at-large.
