Thornton Dial: Storming The Art World In His 80's

Thornton Dial is the exception to almost every rule in the art world. He wasn't discovered until the age of 60, he has no formal education, and when he started, he didn't even realize he was creating art. But in his advancing age, Dial is more successful than ever, landing major exhibitions at galleries and museums across the country this year. Dial opens up to CNN's Don Lemon about his struggles and his inspiration.
