Schweinfurth Art Center is taking virtual tours of artists' studios in this video series. This video, the second in our series, visits the New York City studio of John Michael Byrd. He is primarily a painter, but also works in drawing, video, objects, performance and printmaking. He talks with Schweinfurth Program Director Davana Robedee about why everyone is the south is a good storyteller and how his upbringing in a small Louisiana town affects the symbolism in his paintings.
