Statement in Response to Recent Events Following Vassar College President Bradley's recent statement, the Loeb stands against the acts of racist violence and police brutality.

Following Vassar College President Bradley's recent statement, the Loeb stands against the acts of racist violence and police brutality that took the lives of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and countless others. We are committed to creating a space of inclusion, safety, and access, and we recognize that all museums have more work to do in addressing the systemic racism associated with our national and institutional histories. Our work with artists, students, scholars, and community members is invaluable in fighting for social justice and strengthening human connections. With our words and actions, we will continue to say: Black Lives Matter.
