A Passion for Art Collecting, Appreciation Drives Diasporal Rhythms
It’s an art collection unlike any other.
Patric McCoy is president of Diasporal Rhythms, an art collectors’ organization
he co-founded that’s dedicated to exposing the public to art of the African diaspora.
The organization was founded in 2003 by McCoy, Carol Briggs, Joan Crisler and Daniel Parker after they were each asked to be on a panel about art collecting. That’s when they realized how their passions aligned. They say it’s the only organization of its kind in the country, and it now includes 80 art collectors. Together, they organize partnerships with schools and museums and host annual home tours to ensure the public is properly exposed to artists of the African diaspora.

Moved back to the Borough of my birth...Queens New York...Originally from SouthSide but now I live in Far Rockaway.
