Sotheby’s will move forward with its Paris sale of about 300 pre-Columbian antiquities, despite numerous objections from four Latin American countries citing cultural ownership. Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Peru have all disputed items to be sold for possibly being illegally exported.
Culture can mean many things: it can be your language, your food, your clothing, your religion, etc. Here at Cultivating Culture, however, we cherish the aspect of culture that inspires: we love the arts. We highlight museums, galleries, organizations, and individuals that have dedicated their lives to supporting the arts. We celebrate the facet of humanity that has brought “order out of chaos,” and we invite you to join, or to enjoy.
We are still a growing community, but we hope you stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information, news, articles, and appreciation of how our world cultivates culture.
