The Arts Company Artists Added to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC

The Arts Company is rightly proud of three artists we have represented since the 1990s--Thornton Dial, Gee's Bend Quilts, and Lonnie Holley--whose work has been added to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  Special thanks go to Bill Arnett, our friend and mentor, for giving us all new insights into how to think about great art, and for his persistence in giving major black artists a new description--Great American Artists.
