DePaul Art Museum acknowledges and condemns acts of violence and injustice against Black individuals and communities. We see your pain and anger and mourn with you. We stand with those fighting for justice.
There is no separation between art and life, nor between past and present. Museums are founded on colonial models that we must work consciously and transparently to change. DPAM reaffirms its commitment to this change and social justice by centering artists who have been historically marginalized and oppressed. By foregrounding their humanity and creative expression, we extend an invitation to listen, to hear, and to learn. As an institution of lifelong learning and education, we will continue to ask questions, invite dialogue, and do the work to fight systemic racism.
