Andy Goldsworthy is undoubtedly one of the most talked-about land artists of modern times. His visually striking works are made at a human scale with incredible attention to vibrant colors and uncanny details.
Augusta Savage (Feb 29, 1892 – March 26, 1962) was an African-American sculptor associated with the Harlem Renaissance. She was also a teacher and her studio was important to the careers of a rising generation of artists who would become nationally known. She worked for equal rights for African Americans in the arts.
"We were stolen, sold and bought together from the African continent. We got on the slave ships together. We lay back to belly in the holds of the slave ships in each others excrement and urine together, sometimes died together, and our lifeless bodies thrown overboard together. Today, we are standing up together, with faith and even some joy." SLAVERY MONUMENT, River St - Savannah GA
The reason the world calls Black people, especially Black Americans, “liquid money” is because we are, corporately and indeed, cash-rich and asset-poor.
