Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei.
Coming up we’ll talk with a local artist who is using his art to confront symbols of racism and turning some of those symbols on their heads. And later we’ll discuss the latest vaccine controversy and efforts to change Florida’s voting laws to make it harder for some people to vote.
John Sims is a widely acclaimed, multi-media artist who uses his art to challenge white supremacy and the denatured memorials to the Confederacy. His work has been featured nationally and internationally and he is an Artist in Residence at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota.
