School of Art Response to Events Surrounding American Monument & Dismissal of University Art Museum Director

Posted on October 16, 2018 by School of Art

In response to the recent dismissal of CSULB University Art Museum Director Kimberli Meyer and the disruption of the American Monument project at the UAM by artist lauren woods [the lower case “l” and “w” are preferred by the artist], and in the context of ongoing dialogue and concern among School of Art students, staff, and faculty, and the steady stream of comments from parties to the UAM situation, we feel compelled to issue a public statement. As the Director and Associate Directors of SOA, we have decided to issue this statement with only our names attached because we cannot assert that this statement reflects the sentiments of all within our learning community or that all within our learning community have “signed off” on this statement. However, based on multiple discussions and meetings, we are confident that this statement reflects the concerns and hopes of many. For more details please download the full statement.
