ARTPARTHEID: How It All Began with Sheila Gaskins & United Diverse Artists, lnc. Funding sources are limited and there is not enough of money to go around. With that being the case, who can afford to do Art? Who can produce, create, or sustain Art? The Baltimore Arts scene is split into the haves and the have nots. There are silos in existence. Art venues don’t reflect the community and art disciplines are segregated as well.
How do you stop the same ol’ same ol’? How does one change the status quo? Enter ARTPARTHEID: Bridging the gap of disparities in the art scene in Baltimore. Meet the unlikely crew that decided to unite forces and address this artistic concern featuring United Diverse Artists, lnc. — Sheila, Melissa, Michelle, Hannah, Valeska, Olivia, Sophia, and Mia.
