Over the past few years, I have noticed several collectors (and artists) who are art rich, but cash poor.  A recent example that comes to mind is the late Merton Simpson of NYC.  This man had an art…Continue

It's good to find an Afrikan art network, letting the eyes elaborate on the beauties of ethnicity. Im glad to see such melaninated beauties. Ashe!

I'm a recently new member of Diasporal Rhythms but I have definitely been following Mr. McCoy and Professor Parker closely and visiting their South Side of Chicago collections for several years now... It's a great feeling to be an artist and a collector. Thanks for the update and thanks for forming this group.

Marcus we have been championing the efforts of Diasporal Rhythms for years and have invited co-founder Patric McCoy to speak about collecting in Miami and Atlanta BAIA events.

Take care,

When I wake up to art around me, it's a wonderful feeling ... Diasporal Rhythms is a dedicated group of Chicago collectors championing art of the diaspora and local black artists who deserve attention and exposure ....

Love the way you and the other collectors share your art with us.

On JULY 20, I attended the discussion for the collector "African American Power Collectors and the Art of collecting with Pat.McCoy", a few of us discussed with you afterward, about starting  a similar group (Diasporal Rhythms in Chicago) in Atlanta. Our names and numbers were taken and I am anxiously awaiting to hear from you about the status of this idea. I would love to meet with and share with others my love of art in the Atlanta and surrounding areas. Let us know what we have to do to get started.

Gaps in my wall paper...

OK, I'm having fun with the wall paper commit but I really love living with art and finding new and exciting works. I don't chase the tail of the arts market trying to accumulate the works by artists of historical significance only to own a print of an original. I go after original works by extremely talented artists living and every now and again I'll find a piece I can afford by an artists that is no longer around to rip the benefits of the purchase.

I'll share more later but for now welcome to my world.

Living with art, damn if it matches the couch.
