Chocolate: The Exhibition has opened at the Gilcrease. This exhibition explores the plant, the history, the culture, and more from the world of chocolate. Definitely worth a visit. https://gilcrease.org/exhibitions/chocolate/

As part of the initiative to further my educational mission in the field of design art, I've donated pieces of major designs to the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Musuem in New York, and The Museum of Modern Art. #philanthropy #art

There's a big difference between buying art and collecting art. Buying art is more of a random activity based on likes, preferences or attractions at any given moment, while collecting art is more of a purposeful directed long-term commitment. Are you a collector or buyer?
