Hi Najee. I just left a blog post that is awaiting approval. In the event that it is "not approved. i just wanted to run it by you:

For those of you interested in contributing to a worthwhile cause, famed African American Sculptor, Milton Sherrill has teamed up with Hatchfund to solicit funds for a sculpture project.
Info can be found at: http://www.hatchfund.org/project/the_legend_series#.U8j-TLSkVO1.yahoomail For those unaware, Milton Sherrill was featured in the Vol. 6.1 Sculpture issue of International Review of African American Art. An issue that also profiled iconic sculptors Richmond Barthe and Elizabeth Catlett!

Najee, not sure if you are familiar with Milton's work but i know you are a serious collector and Milton's work borders on genius (IMHO). Maybe a future feature in BAIA??? Let me know if you need additional info or contact info for Mr. Sherrill.

Take care.

Tony

Thanks Najee for making me feel welcome as I try to re-establish my presence here. I was on the old BAIA and lost all my "friends" when things changes. Some have not come back and I look forward to having new ones
