Speaking of Mao and Chinese art, there's an exhibition at Asia Society in New York City called Art and China's Revolution that focuses on communist art and propaganda. If you're interested, it's on until Jan 11th. My favorite pieces were the Rent Collection Courtyard sculptures. (Also check out the excellent Islamic calligraphy exhibit while you're there)
