Museums Are Not Neutral: Wear It Across Your Heart 

My friend Mike Murawski, Director of Education & Public Programs at the Portland Art Museum, and I have launched our “Museums Are Not Neutral” initiative. We would love to see more of our institutions engaging their communities in a deeper manner about social and political issues. Some museum professionals claim that museums must be neutral spaces. We oppose that attitude and decided to put our position on a t-shirt – Museums Are Not Neutral.

I hope you agree that museums should be active forces for social justice. Please consider purchasing one of the shirts before the campaign ends on September 20, 2017. The shirts, which are available in two colors and a range of sizes, sell for $19.99. Proceeds will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
