Katonah Museum or Art Exhibit pertinent to todays discord in the country

 
Katonah Museum of Art Board President's letter to the community addresses these troubling times in America
"A Letter from Leadership"
 
"We are all bearing witness to a profoundly challenging time in the history of our nation and of the world. The ravages of the coronavirus have affected hundreds of thousands of individuals and their families, forced the closing of beloved businesses and institutions, caused massive unemployment not seen for almost a century, and now the nation is convulsing with grief in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and the many others before him.
 
We share in the nation’s outrage over these deaths and believe fully that protest and freedom of expression is at the heart of our democracy. We stand with those who seek to undo institutionalized forms of oppression and those acting to lead our communities towards healing and unity by building more equitable institutions. We also believe that the Katonah Museum of Art, other museums, the art community, and artists play an important role in confronting and exploring these issues. We have a role in both provoking dialogue and in creating a community space in which to engage.
 
Our current exhibition, Bisa Butler: Portraits, and the programming surrounding it explores issues of racism, identity and the experience of African Americans. This is central to our national conversation at this critical moment. We invite you to take a virtual tour, to engage in our programming, and when we reopen this summer to see us in person. 
 
We hope for positive, healing change."
