one reason why coming home to visit #kansascity, #missouri was important to me is because since i left really almost 12 years ago i grew tremendously as a human being. i will forever be grateful for being kc’s #nativeson. growing up i never knew or even imagined that i would live my life as an artist. truth be told, my folks always have just been doing their best to live their lives despite pre-existing hardships. the extent of #arting for me was always church and/or school related. i can truly say that i had only been to the nelson-atkins museum of art once during my childhood on into teenage years. however, landing in #nyc and working for #spikelee + studying at #eugenelangcollege #thenewschool for #liberalarts changed the game for me. the first work of art that i truly engaged w was kehindewiley’s ‘napoleon leading the army over the alps’ for a ‘visualizing race, gender and identity’ university lecture course. my brain was FLIPPED! but i grew and i went within and started to understand the world through many different lenses. more over, coming home this round has been so many feelings. some of them hurt, some of them are a relief. however, i am always moving forward. it was amazing to go to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art today w my family. we just missed my bro jeron. art is so many things and i will fight for art and will fight for all folks to truly have access to it … it really is the difference between life and death + love and hate. art is not a thing; it is a way. art provides the opportunity for us to find ourselves, create ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. so, if art is to nourish the roots of culture, society must set the artist free (and support) to follow his/her vision wherever it takes them. xoxo #arting #brohoganymigrationtour #kansascity #missouri | photo: ryan jackson (baby bro)

Steve Yi, CEO of web advertising platform MediaAlpha, says that the liberal arts train students to thrive in subjectivity and ambiguity, a necessary skill in the tech world where few things are black and white. “In the dynamic environment of the technology sector, there is not typically one right answer when you make decisions,” he says. “There are just different shades of how correct you might be,” he says.
