>>A young artist friend of mine (i will not divulge his name) once asked
for career advice. I told him to go to graduate school at Yale. He did
so and then moved back to this humble burg sporting the polish version
of his first name instead of the americanized one he used to go by. He
has been well received.

That's a good story.  Best of both sides from a marketing perspective: 
official channel for emerging artist + the needed political or cultural
other.  It's interesting how long artists have been using maps or flags
as an explicit device, such as David Hammons's US flag in African
national colors.  Alghiero Botti has used both.
