Sandy Smith says:
I have not viewed all of these yet, however it seems as if these are random acts of white European culture. So, the concern is that the places chosen and the “culture” chosen is an indictment against non-white, non-European culture. I certainly hope that future winners will be much more diverse in representations of what constitutes “culture”

Thanks for your note. Random Acts of Culture is a three-year program. Our first year is dedicated to the classics. Future Random Acts will include gospel, flamenco and tango. In addition to this series, Knight Foundation’s arts program funds a range of engaging arts programs – including African dance in Macon, Georgia and an award-winning Hispanic theater festival in Miami. I hope you enjoy what you see and will stay tuned for more.
