    DUDE!!!!! i just watched a few of your YouTube videos (AGAIN) and decided to look more into you since we share the same interest, ART. I thought your museum was located in Harlem or Brooklyn, but you’re about two and a half hours from me. I’m in Dothan, Al.I would love to stop in to visit your museum. Are appointments a part of your policy? If not, I’d like to stop in soon. Keep up the great work and sharing the needed advice for new artists.
    Best regards,
