That was a narrow minded misinformed piece of information. Are you saying
that the only true American art is that done by the Native Americans, what
about folk art and vernacular art. Are they not valid forms of creative
expression? Perhaps you are looking at "Airport Art" that which is meant to
be sold to tourist. No art is produced in a vacuum and if you are trained in
art appreciation you should be a beable to distinguish the suttle influences
of the different cultures that create the art. You will not find that which
you will not seek. Spend a little more tme diving into the art than into the
water and see what you discover.
