New White House Art
America’s first black President revealed his true colors by wanting to clean the White House walls of everything white or at least white male. Obama’s most recent effort is to replace the existing art collection with works by “more diverse” artists.
Discreet approaches to dealers and collectors who represent Black, Hispanic and Asian artists as well as female painters were made with the intent to replace 400 pieces of the White House’s permanent art collection purchased over the centuries.
It seems the Obama’s have a more contemporary taste for ethnic art than traditional. I do suggest before they spend several million taxpayer dollars on new art that they remember they are only guests and don’t own the place.
Perhaps like the Clintons’ they intend to take everything not nailed down when they leave – including their new multi-million dollar art collection.
Who are we kidding – the way things are going it’s not clear that Obama ever intends to leave. If his bold dream of ridding us of the 22nd Amendment works out then expect a renaming of the White House to the Black House.
Sometimes it’s the little things that reveal exactly what is happening.
