Which artists should the Obamas add to the White House walls? Artinfo.com asked 21 artists, curators, dealers and bloggers–including Agnes Gund, Shepard Fairey, Andres Serrano (who suggests his own work, natch), Emilio Steinberger (of Haunch of Venison gallery) Edward Winkleman and Paddy Johnson to make suggestions.  Their proposals, and the reasoning behind them, are fascinating to consider.
