MMFA Presents The Hard Truth: Representation and the Arts
As part of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts’ three-year Institute of Museum and Library Services-funded diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI) initiative, the MMFA will present The Hard Truth: Representation and the Arts, a four-part exhibition and lecture series. This year-long series will engage the complex topics related to DEAI—raising awareness for these issues in the museum field while allowing the MMFA to reflect on its own journey.
