A few videos of the works available at the auction🙏🏽 Dante Biss-Grayson
I just read that your online auction will only split money made with the Native artists represented in the auction. Given how hard the Native population in this state have been hit by Covid, I would have hoped this event could be a fundraiser for their benefit...
Ditto, ditto, DITTO !
Important collections & worthwhile organization. Albeit that like Williamsburg, VA the city itself is an imaginary & thus in reality a fundamentally false & phoney represtation.
Good evening folks
