Opportunity. Fast food. Freedom. Many outsiders think these things encompass America. But there’s more to us than just a Big Mac. Visual art is a very big part of our country and could very well be a gateway to cultural diplomacy.
A new $1 million dollar program, called smART Power, has been administered by the Bronx Museum of the Arts to promote and expand culture diplomacy. Visual artists, including painters and sculptors, will be asked to create public art projects in various foreign countries.The smART Power Program will send artists to China, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kosovo, Lebanon, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Turkey, and Venezuela to push the boundaries of their art making. These artists will be working on projects with local students, teachers, and athletes.
“We want to showcase all the diversity of America’s art and culture,” said Maura Pally, the State Department official responsible for smARTpower.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts will put out an open call for proposals in early 2011. Fifteen artists will be chosen by a panel of experts put together by the museum. If you’re an artist interested in traveling, keep an eye on the museum’s website for details.

Will’s work is based on conflicting imagery, often with a heavy dose of sarcasm in an effort to draw attention to social ills. His baroque stylization combined with modern techniques and subject matter create compositions that are both beautiful and haunting overlapped with dark humor.
