AAMD Statement on Travel Ban

New York, NY
January 30, 2017

In response to President Trump's January 27 executive order, the Association of Art Museum Directors stated:

AAMD member museums share art from across time and cultures, and convene artists, researchers, educators, students and visitors from countries around the globe. We will always welcome all people regardless of their religion or country of origin. We are deeply concerned that with the current executive order, artistic and scholarly collaborations could now be in jeopardy, just at the moment when cultural exchange and understanding are more important than ever.
