As Donald Trump’s presidency continues to gain momentum, art movement organizers and experts say they are worried about the effects of his presidency on the global art movement.
The Washington Post has compiled a list of the art movements that have taken a beating under Trump.
The list includes major museums and galleries across the country.
“This is a period of incredible disruption, and the stakes are incredibly high for the art world,” said Tom Stinson, co-founder of the National Endowment for the Arts and the artist-in-residence at the Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.
“There are a lot of institutions that are struggling with this as well.
It’s a crisis for us all.
We are going to need to build the kind of structures that will withstand this.”

President Donald Trump has called on Congress to pass his sweeping tax cut and infrastructure plan before Christmas.
He is proposing a 10% tax on every new household income, a 3.8% income tax on those earning more than $250,000 a year, a 10.9% tax increase on those making more than half a million dollars a year and a 2.2% tax hike on people making less than $10,000.
The top tax rate on the rich would rise from 35% to 39.6%.
The top rate on all income would rise to 39% on those who earn more than about $200,000, a 35% rate on those in the $50,000 to $75,000 range and a 20% rate for those in between.
“The Trump administration is putting enormous pressure on artists to work with these policies,” said Stinson.
“It is absolutely imperative that artists, in the arts, stand up and say that this is unacceptable and stop this kind of rhetoric.”
Artists in this group include artists who have exhibited or written works about Trump, the Trump family and the president himself, as well as prominent members of the arts world.
“They are doing great,” said Sarah Binder, the director of communications at the Center for the Study of American Politics at the University of Virginia.
“I think that the art community is really struggling right now.
The president is doing everything he can to stifle this art movement, to shut it down.”
The Trump administration’s push to cut taxes on the wealthy has been met with criticism from some artists.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia issued a statement criticizing the president’s plan to slash the estate tax, which currently applies only to estates worth more than around $5.5 million.
The tax cut would reduce estate taxes by $2.4 trillion over 10 years, according to the Tax Foundation.
“Trump’s plan is a disaster for American families, the arts and our economy, as it would eliminate a tax break for millions of Americans and disproportionately harm working families,” said the statement.
“Congress must act to keep the estate and gift tax rates as low as possible.”
Art in this category includes works from some of the most prominent artists in the country, including David Brin, the creator of “Pulp Fiction,” who has received multiple nominations for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Medal of Arts.

In a speech last week, Trump called for the abolition of the estate, which is the basis of a $10 million estate tax exemption for estates of up to $5 million that currently applies to estates of $5,000 or less.
“Our government will not be able to afford to keep this tax,” Trump said.
“We will not afford to pay it.”
Trump’s proposed cuts to taxes for the wealthy are not included on the Post’s list of Art In Decline 2017.
“In a time of austerity, a government that doesn’t have the resources to sustain the arts is hurting itself,” said Robert H. Smith, a professor at the American Museum of Natural History and co-author of “The Art of the Impossible.”
“It’s hard to get artists to agree to anything.
That’s what’s happening now.” “
But that’s what we need: more transparency.
That’s what’s happening now.”
Art movements are at the center of the push to reduce taxes on billionaires, who are also benefiting from the tax cuts.
Trump has proposed a 10 percent tax on everything Americans earn above $1 million, and he’s proposing a 3% tax rate for all income above $250 million.
“For many, the idea of reducing their taxes is anathema,” said H. Michael Heaney, the vice president for policy at the National Association of Re
