Kansas City Racial Artsy Debut

Exceptional verbiage and snobby upscale art world analysis of this local art exhibit financed partially but grants, taxpayers but most likely financed by parents -- Like most millennials (and more boomers than we realize) . Still a great glimpse at the local cultural scene. Checkit:

As a practicing artist, a former NEA intern and the founding president of the Kansas City Artists Coalition, I must say--

This felt like it was written by jiggling an exotic version of a Magic 8 ball of words and phrases that make no sense.
