>I suspect, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't yell, that some of theproblems with multiculturism in art is that much of what is considered
multicultural is also considered "folk art" and thereby not considered
"real art or fine art". I want my students to leave me having the
ability to appreciate the art in the everyday things that surround them,
to find beauty in the patterns and lines made by telephone wires and the
wonderful feeling of a bowl that has perfect balance when held in their
hands. I also want them to be comfortable in the museum and gallery.
