It is not only the art community and it is not only the US.  Recruiting top scientific talent 
is having the same difficulties.  I know personally of a couple of recent examples when, 
after considerable time and effort had been spent in international talent search and 
recruitment, offers to leading researchers (both Europeans) were turned down explicitly 
because the scientists did not want to bring their families to the US under the current 
administration.  I have heard indirectly of some similar cases in the UK.
