Artists and curators discussed the role of the public artist yesterday during the My America conversation series at Syracuse University.  

Painter and curator Benito Huerta said it is important to advocate for diversity in gallery staff as well as curators and artists. 

After talking about the exhibit that has stopped at SU (next scheduled stop: Miami), then showing some of his favorite contemporary portraits and juxtaposing them with more classic works, Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity Curator Blake Bradford reminded the audience that we don’t have to sacrifice artistically to pursue diversity.
