The photo to the left shows artist Hershell West sitting on scaffolding to work on a mural. His is an inspiring story, a story which reaches beyond him as an individual. By looking at him, we see how a black man born and raised in the segregated South could overcome obstacles to achieve his goals. In addition, the documentary illustrates the importance of public art, art education and arts advocacy. Finally, it shows some of the possibilities open to an artist who does not, for example, achieve the fame of a Picasso or a Jackson Pollack.
