There are more African American artists in today’s contemporary art scene than ever before. Now compare the list below to a list of Latin American artists, or Asian American artists, or Native American artists in the contemporary art market. You will find the other ethnic group’s artists list to be miniscule compared to the list below.

“I did respond to this comment and published a reply, and the author has built quite a list for me to research.However it only supports my assumption that there is a noticeable lack of cultural balance when it comes to the visual arts in America.
More support of this fact comes from a comment on my last post suggesting I elaborate more on the subject,but, all I can do is set the trap for dialog and hope I get a bite which has proved to be effective judging by this post I nabbed from the Internet in responce to something I wrote about the Tv Show back in August that I was happy that Abdi won the grand prize,which was a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum.
