LOCATED ON THE UPPER WEST SIDE of Manhattan, prima ballerina Misty Copeland‘s three-bedroom apartment was recently showcased by Architectural Digest (AD). She gave the design magazine’s audience a video tour. The home’s theme, she said, was works by artists fo color. In nearly every room, works by African American artists are on display. Nathaniel Mary Quinn‘s work hangs in the living room. There is a piece by Deborah Roberts on view in the guest bathroom. The “primary” bedroom is appointed with upholstered suede walls and a small work by Lorna Simpson. [More
