Black Lives Matter

A message from Paul Provost, CEO and the Art Bridges staff

While each of us grapples with our personal responses to recent events, Art Bridges is having critical conversations about our role as a foundation that believes in social justice, equity, and access. We also acknowledge that the events of today are deeply rooted in America’s past, and in a long history of racial and economic oppression. 

Art Bridges stands in unity with Black people. We support the protests against racial injustice provoked by the murder of George Floyd and countless others and join the call for real reform. 

Black Lives Matter.

We believe in the power of art to be a catalyst for change. However, we know that art alone is not enough. As our field works to reconsider the idea of who belongs in museums and on museum walls, Art Bridges supports our partners as they explore available resources, educate their staff, and engage in deep thought and conversation with their whole communities. We will be doing the same.
