Diversity Access + Equity + the Arts

Inequity in both pay, representation and critical reception continue to plague America and in particular the art world, both institutionally and in the commercial gallery sphere.

It is crucial that working professionals dedicate themselves to creating opportunity and space for women and minorities within their own projects, institutions and businesses. And we should all spend time learning about the amazing projects, ideas and initiatives dedicated to the diversity in the fine arts.
