Another example of Marxism in our museums: The Wall Street Journal recently published the article "Woke Ideologues are Taking Over American Art Museums." In it the author, Eric Gibson, editor of the Leisure & Arts page, states "The politicization of art museums is so pervasive that there is hardly an institution or aspect of museum practice exempt from it. It's now commonplace for labels accompanying portraits as disparate as those from colonial America and 18th-century France to include information about the sitter's connection to slavery, no matter how tenuous." Note: A sitter is a person posing for a painting.
