1989 television interview of Corey Barksdale at age 17 by WSMV Nashville newscaster. The interview features Corey as a up and coming African-American artist carrying on the tradition of great African-American artist from the Harlem Renaissance era. The tradition of artist such as Aaron Douglas, Palmer Hayden, William H. Johnson, Lois Mailou Jones, Jacob Lawrence, Archibald Motley Jr., etc.
Nashville connection to Harlem Renaissance:Aaron Douglas, Fisk University, Carl Van Vechten Gallery.
When he died in 1946, Alfred Stieglitz, the great photographer and tireless promoter of modern art, left his estate to his wife, the painter Georgia O'Keeffe. His work as a photographer she shrewdly distributed to the large American museums that could be counted on to secure his reputation. But a sizable part of his art collection O'Keeffe deposited in a less predictable place. At the urging of a friend, the Harlem Renaissance writer Carl Van Vechten, she gave 97 works to Fisk University, the historically black school in Nashville. And she threw in a few of her own. One of those was Radiator Building-- Night, New York, 1927, a painting we now recognize as a key moment in her career.
Years passed, during which Fisk's endowment dwindled while the art market went into warp drive. In 2005 the school's president, Hazel O'Leary, came up with an idea that could not only pay to renovate the frayed campus gallery where the Stieglitz Collection has languished but also pump millions of dollars into Fisk's general budget. Why not sell off just a bit of that famous art? But when the school moved to bring Radiator Building to market, it triggered what became a lawsuit by the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, N.M., which moved to block the sale on the grounds that it violated the terms of the painter's bequest. In February the museum offered Fisk a deal. It could sell Radiator Building, but only to the museum, and for $7 million, a price much below what it would go for in the current art market. If Fisk said yes, the museum promised not to block the sale of another painting from the collection, a Marsden Hartley, on the open market. Fisk said yes.
Here I'll show you how to get xbox live points to play all your favorite games, for FREE. No more expensive monthly xbox live memberships!!
ust follow the directions in the video, then scoll down to the link.
I have sent tons of friends to this site, and everyone gets at least three months of xbox live for doing a bunch of stupid surveys, that you can get credited for even if you enter all fake information.
I mean, you want to sign up at the site with your real information...so you get your stuff. But You can enter whatever you want in the survey fields. I mean, as long as you're logged on to the site while doing a survey in another window, you get credited real dollar value for each one you do.
So, not only can you get xbox live to play Halo 3, but you can really use your earnings to buy whatever you want. All "points" earned on the site are equal to cash. 1$ = 1 Point.
You can buy literally anything, because you can fill out a custom order form, and buy anything you see on Amazon or Ebay. Just give them your item number, and as long as you have enough points (Dollars) in your account, your item will be shipped to you....FREE!
Now, myself...I've gotten Some cool stuff too. When I got laid off last year and was looking for work, there would be days I'd just stay home and surf the net looking for job listings, and sometimes just fuckin off watching movies and stuff. I stumbled upon the site, and almost crapped myself..
In like two hours of sitting there clicking yes or no for a hundred questions, I already had 3 months of Xbox Live, and still had a bit less than 20$ left over!
Figure that out. If this was a job, I would technically be making over 20$ an hour, and all just for clicking a mouse around.
Now, granted, you won't become a millionaire doing this, but it's a real fun way to make a little extra spending money, and all for doing pretty much nothing!
To date I have gotten 2 xbox 360s (I sold one on Ebay, and turned it into real money!), and countless months of free LIVE. This is all in doing a couple surveys (FOR FREE) every once in a while.
You don't need a credit card, you don't need to give out any sketchy information, you won't get any spam, or viruses or whater. Just try it!!!
