Symposium: How Museums Are Diversifying Their Collections to Include Black and Brown Artists, Art on Hulfish on Palmer Square

Thursday November 3, 2022
5:00 PM

A 2019 Williams College survey of the collections of 18 major US museums found that, of a selection from works by 9,000 named artists, just 1.2% of works were made by Black artists. A panel of museum curators and directors will consider how museums are now working to diversify their collections.

This symposium - jointly organized by the Arts Council of Princeton and the Princeton University Art Museum - is set to accompany Retrieving the Art of James Wilson Edwards and a Circle of Black Artists, an exhibition on view from October 14 through December 3 at the Arts Council of Princeton, Paul Robeson Center for the Arts.
