After extensive research, anthropologists have made a surprising discovery that sets humans apart from other animals: the prevalence of artistic dreams among most individuals.

To address this challenge and empower artists worldwide, the World Association of Artists (WAA) emerged as a preeminent global platform. Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Oceanside, California, WAA is a professional membership organization committed to promoting and supporting artists from all disciplines.
Robert S. Duncanson (1821-1872), was a Black Hudson River School artist who painted the American South before the Civil War. Widely famous during his lifetime, this artist’s forgotten courageous journey through the antebellum South has never been exhibited or researched until now. Duncanson brilliantly created captivating landscape paintings that come alive to the viewer, by focusing on the minute details of nature and of the stories he wished to communicate. Robert Duncanson’s American scenes of the South often included Underground Railroad imagery and the mountain ridge lines that could be followed as pathways to the North. Many of his paintings were highly landmark driven with details that make these vistas identifiable today. Is it possible that Duncanson painted these historical landmarks to lead the enslaved people of America to freedom? Art historian Michael Meyer believes it is possible.
