At this year's festival, Mr. Fredrick Prescott has already won the award for most unprofessional display, and I'm not talking about his sculptures. I witnessed him raise his voice at a child, and participate in a shouting contest with a parent. Instead of diffusing the situation, he escalated it by calling them a bad parent, a "half-brain", and uneducated. In addition, the security stood by and allowed this act to go on in front of many other children. I have never seen an artist demonstrate such a poor attitude toward his connoisseurs.
