Earlier this month, the National Gallery of Art in Washington announced it had made history – it bought a painting by a Native American artist for the very first time.
The gallery purchased I See Red: Target, a 1992 piece by Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, a response to the colonization of America by Christopher Columbus.
Sometimes, a strong dose of reality is what’s needed to motivate people to do the right thing, and that’s what appears to be happening in Clark County, Washington.
When Clark County declared a state of emergency over the outbreak late last month, there were 36 confirmed cases of the disease. Fast-forward to this week and there are now 50 confirmed cases and that number is continuing to rise.
