Earning recognition as an artist has always been hard because museums are focused around art that has already been talked about for centuries. The world needs a museum that’s fresh and avant-garde – reflective of the current state of the art community. This place would be like the offspring of the likes of MOCA and LACMA. It would contain paintings, drawings, film, photography, sculpture, and installation made by the students and museum-goers. I realized this dream when I found that my favorite thing to do is review portfolios. I love to sort through pieces by no-name students and pick out my favorites.
In establishing this museum, I would be able to exercise my passion for curation and design. In school I will study the practice, theory, and history of art, as well as Business. I plan to go on to Graduate School towards a Masters of Fine Art. I would start small by collecting art and searching for financial aid to build an endowment. I would start in one city, and as the company grew I would open more across the country. There would be one in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York!
The creative field needs a place like this for economic reasons. It would create jobs and publicity for artists. But the world as a whole calls for a museum for emerging artists because art is a way in which celebrate life, and there just isn’t enough quality art where the general public can see it.
