Art: Black WorksPosted: November 29, 2011
Would you hang an all black art work in your home (or fantasy museum)? What if we said it was a work by Robert Motherwell, Louise Nevelson, Kara Walker, Richard Serra, or Robert Mapplethorpe?

Dear Readers: Do not adjust your computer screens. Troy is taking over White Cabana this week and, as you can see, he’s really shaken things up around here! Enjoy. – Jordana
