Amy and I have been collecting contemporary art since we started dating in 1990. Every morning at our place in Aspen, over morning coffee, we get to enjoy this amazing piece by Julie Maren.
When I wrote the original post, I got a short email from Phi Pham.
I hope you’ll be mindful of collecting art from Black and POC artists too!
My response was:
We have some, but not mindfully. For example, we are a huge collector of Emilio Lobato.
It’s a good reminder.
Do you have any recommendations for artists in the Western US who are Black or POC?
