AAMG Responds to Travel Ban

In response to President Trump’s January 27 executive order, your AAMG board shares this statement:
Academic museums and galleries across the U.S. are dedicated to teaching our many audiences about global heritage–past and present, individual and collective–not only to enhance educational and enrichment opportunities in the communities we serve but also to foster mutual respect and understanding well beyond the borders of our localities. In furtherance of this commitment, we regularly welcome curators, faculty, students, and collectors from around the world who support our mission and share their creative practice and experiences with us. Among us are faculty, students, and others in our communities who are and feel threatened by our government’s recent actions.  We offer our support to them all and we encourage our members to use our safe and brave spaces for dialogue to promote cross-cultural understanding and civic responsibility.
Jill Hartz, President
