Art Beat Update: Arvie Smith

Clip: Season 17 Episode 1706 | 4m 15s

When Art Beat first met painter Arvie Smith in 2001, he was using larger-than-life colors and shapes to make a statement about the past. Though a lot has changed for Smith in the 15 years since, his bright paintings still convey a powerful message of social justice.
