Jayson Musson, on making art

Jayson Musson, the artist most famous for his Hennessy Youngman persona and videos, stopped by Haverford last Friday to talk about his artistic trajectory and his philosophy of art-making. To a full room of students, faculty and even a few parents, Musson shared his experience as a rapper in the group Plastic Little (who reportedly played a few shows at Haverford), his thoughts about art school, and his past and latest work. Musson was a compelling and thought-provoking speaker, the rare artist who seems to be solely driven by his own amusement and enjoyment of the craft.

The speech was sponsored by the James House board.
