Right now, the world is in a ferment of pandemic, politics, demonstrations, bias, and provocation. For many of us, the question is: What are individuals and cultural institutions to do?
The San Diego Art Institute stands in allegiance with our colleagues who have voiced so eloquently the deep heartache of a community knowing it must do more and do better.
SDAI’s commitment to cultural equity compels us to speak out in light of this moment of grave injustice and many centuries of injustice that precede it. We say Black Lives Matter emphatically and without qualification. As an institution, our staff and Board are dedicated to constantly improving our support of Black communities and communities of color, while recognizing there is always more work to be done.
You will find some selected resources below. We urge you to stand boldly with Black communities at this time, follow their leadership, and listen.
