Black Art In America has a number of members who understand that

art has more to do with sharing and less with pushing themselves.

Those members who want the glory have missed the meaning of

Black Art.

Is it really about a person forcing their point of view

on others?

Is Black Art, in general, about large images and long, rambling ideas

about what a person thinks is art?

I agree with Carol finney that this is the wrong format for out- of- space

ideas that try to make icons out of people who may or may not exist

in the real world.

A person who thinks that Black Art is based on them and what they

deem to worth pushing in front of others (Carol's Art is way better and

real then "some of the stuff that someone " must think will get them

noticed on the comment wall.

The good news is that an ugly image will only show how meaningless

it is for a person to think that they have talent (and then, try to trick

others into thinking that any large image, backed by rambling,

should be accepted as art by real Black Fine Art Collectors.

Carol is right and this is NOT the correct format for ego-tripping.

If a person can not help pushing their images,  then they should at

least have the talent to back it up.

Worship a person and upload all the large images that you want;

only, do it on "your page."

I am in total disagreement with your comments. Another format is needed for these discussions!

Comment by carol finney on August 1, 2014 at 11:34am

I think your format needs another group. This is for collectors, not political views!

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.

Comment by Black Art In America on January 5, 2014 at 5:52pm

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,
