How Museums Are Diversifying Their Collections to Include Black and Brown Artists

Join the Arts Council of Princeton for a symposium held in conjunction with ACP’s groundbreaking exhibition, RETRIEVING THE LIFE AND ART OF JAMES WILSON EDWARDS AND A CIRCLE OF BLACK ARTISTS.

 

A Williams College survey of the works in the collections of all major US museums in 2019 found that just 1.2% of works were created by Black artists. This symposium will present how museums are now working to diversify their collections. 

A reception will follow.
