TKC MUST SEE!!! TAXPAYER FUNDED ARTSKC DOMINATED BY HOTTIES AS KANSAS CITY CREATIVE CLASS REJECT DIVERSITY!!!
Recently, Google endured a bit of drama regarding diversity, it's workforce and alleged sexism.
Closer to home . . . Our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY notices that one of KC's most beloved institutions confronts what could be a similar conundrum.
A TKC reader asks . . . "Is it just me or??????"
The smiling black & white photos of the staff are certainly artsy but don't contain much diversity at all.
The image features ArtsKC's new president and CEO Dana Knapp flanked by an all-star hottie cast of attractive, young, seemingly middle-to-upper-class white ladies . . . Which is cool but maybe not completely representative of the local art world.
To be fair, hobnobbing (ugh) with classy, young white women is what motivates most artists. Moreover, accomplished, well-educated power broker ladies of this caliber dominate the art world . . . If old, sticky Sex & The City used DVDs have informed TKC correctly . . . Either that or Charlotte was just a very fancy prostitute.
Also, very few people have the self-confidence to realize that fine art is really just a scam to benefit the rich:
But I digress . . .
The point here is that ArtsKC gets taxpayer cash to keep all of these hotties employed and yet their workforce looks nothing like the people of Kansas City.
This isn't a private gallery, it's public money and while this organization might consider itself progressive, they feature very little of the "diversity" the local creative class constantly promote in the constant stream of downtown hype.
You decide . . .
