Association of Art Museum Directors

In response to reports that de-funding of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities is under consideration, the Association of Art Museum Directors stated: Funding for the NEA and NEH is very modest, yet this small investment benefits the nation in invaluable ways. The NEA and the NEH provide support for programs in every congressional district in our country—serving people young and old, and those from all walks of life and with different perspectives. It is the mark of a great democracy to support the arts, which are an expression of what makes us human. For these reasons, the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) urges all elected officials who may be considering cutting funding to the NEA and NEH not to do so, and to sustain these programs which serve the American people.

In 1960, AAMD spoke out against the House Un-American Activities Committee's investigation of two artists represented at the Moscow Exhibition, Ben Shahn and Philip Evergood, stating: "An artist's political opinions and affiliations are personal matters, distinct from his work, which must be judged on its merits. The government is not exhibiting artists, but their works." #dayoffacts #benshahn #phillipevergood #aamdotorg #museumhistory #museumfacts #aamd #aamddotorg
