Ray Materson: Embroidered Scenes of Life

Lisa visits with Ray Materson, one of the artists featured in the exhibition Treasures of the Soul: Who is Rich? at Baltimore's Visionary Art Museum. The show focuses on art made from things that have little value in themselves — telephone wires, sock threads, or plastic beads. Materson crafts intricate tiny pictures from sock threads.
