Standing in Solidarity
“The museum field not only has a responsibility to ask the hard questions and learn from each other, we have a unique duty to listen, to chronicle the lessons and histories of our communities, and to educate future generations so that we might stop this senseless violence”
– American Alliance of Museums | June 1, 2020
If anything, the coronavirus pandemic has taught museums how to collaborate, cooperate, learn and listen. It has also shown us that we can do better in so many ways. The Nevada Museum of Art stands in solidarity with our community and our colleagues across the country in response to the tragic death of George Floyd. We join museums in rejecting racism and violence. We are pausing digital communications in order to create space for important dialogue. We are grieving and listening to the symphony of voices in our community that must be heard – because we want to do better.
