Petition to the Whitney and de Young Museums from the American Art Community and Others
In 1976, A.I.R. artists demanded that an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art be canceled. The show, titled Three Centuries of American Art, was heavily opposed by the artists for its lack of inclusivity. The artists who mobilized and organized the protest against the exhibition formed Artists Meeting for Cultural Change (AMCC). This activist group pushed for the greater representation of diversity in the arts.
