Catalina Delgado-Trunk, an undiscovered artist visited by Alice Walton’s scouts

If somebody knocks this year, answer the door. Alice Walton is sponsoring a search for unknown, unrepresented talent for a show meant to be her challenge to the Whitney Biennial and the art-world dominance of New York and Los Angeles. Her team ranks ¬†each prospective artist on three scales: engagement, virtuosity, and appeal. Refreshingly simple. Says the Times,¬†“They are already logged 50,000 miles visiting 500 artists in 30 states, and they had almost 500 more to go.”
