Occupying Wall Street - Accra Shepp

On September 30th, 2011 I went to Zuccotti Park to investigate the protest that began on the 17th. I was immediately impressed with the energy and the dedication of the participants. The sense that the protest had the potential to be historically significant was overwhelming.

The (Slow but Steady) Integration of the Art World


As many people are aware, the world is not entirely fair to artists, and it is even less so to artists who are African-American.
