"When the BMA tried to diversify its collection, it learned just how shallow the art world’s commitment to social justice can be."

"According to its critics, if the BMA wants to diversify its collection, it should raise money from donors to buy more art, rather than trading some art for other art, as the AAMD deaccessioning rules permit and even encourage. In other words, art museums should diversify their collections with all deliberate speed. I think they can and should move a little faster."
