America's Artists Look Beyond the Politics of Red and Blue
Charles and David Koch are two of the richest men in the United States, each worth an estimated $39 to $40 billion, according to Forbes magazine.  Each owns 42 per cent of Koch industries, the second-largest privately held company in the US with annual revenue of an estimated $115 billion, founded by their grandfather.  
They're also two of the active supportres of right-wing causes, funding think tanks, advocacy groups, law suits and political candidates who favor limited government, lower taxes, ending food stamps, government subsidized health care, Social Security opposed to opposed ppromote initiatives that will make them and other 1 percenters even richer===and income inequality in the United States even greater.
If their father hadn't been a founder of the John Birch Society y weren't ,  one might even think they were secret members of Al Queda or ISIS out to destroy the United States. According to the EPA, their company, Koch Industries,  is the single worst violator of environmental protection laws in the country,  responsible for polluting rivers, lakes and streams with the industrial chemicals the company uses and produces to refine oil extract minerals from the mines the Kochs'
own across the country.
The Brothers also fund many of the "scientists" and "sound science" groups that question climate change, providing the Congreessmen and senators the Koch Brothers have bought with the "evidence" they use to block passage of laws that would reduce  carbon emissions while there's still time.
They also fund Citizens United, the group that brought the suit that allowed the Supreme Court to outlaw restrictions on campaign contributions from corporations; the Federalist Society which concocted the NRA's legal theory that the Second Amendment gives Americans the "right" to own and carry semi-automatic weapons; and the Tea Party, which gives modern day "know nothings" the opportunity to shut down government and nearly cause a global financ ial collapse by forcing the US Treasury to forfeit payment of the US debt
A jury of distinguished curators, artists and  collectors will select
35 to 50 works of art for  
opening in late March
for seven weeks
    in Washington, DC
