Just wondering. He attended the SAIC very briefly, from 1907 to 1909, then split for Paris. It's barely a Chicago connection at all, although the SAIC claims him as an alumn. On the other hand, I note Georgia O'Keeffe is included here, and she spent even less time at the SAIC, from 1905-1906.Artemis-Arethusa (talk) 00:23, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Is it a "Diaspora" if they're not from Chicago?
While I'm about it, I have some issue with the section titled "Chicago Artists Internationally", which lists a "diaspora" of artists. But several of the artists listed there are not from Chicago, only came there briefly as students, and then moved on. Claes Oldenburg is Swedish, for goodness sake. Georgia O'Keeffe spent less than a year here as a student. There's no mention on Robert Indiana's page of his living any closer to Chicago than Indiana. We may consider them a loss to Chicago's art culture, but it seems less of a diaspora than an inability on Chicago's part to encourage them to stay.
