But here’s what the museum posted on its website:

“Allegations that publicly surfaced when we opened this exhibition in November 2014, now combined with recent criminal charges brought against Mr. Cosby in Pennsylvania, cast a negative light on what should be a joyful exploration of African and African American art in this gallery.

The National Museum of African Art in no way condones Mr. Cosby’s behavior. We continue to present Conversations: African and African American Artworks in Dialogue because it is fundamentally about the artworks and the artists who created them, not Mr. Cosby. The exhibition brings public attention to artists whose art has not been seen, art that tells powerful and poignant stories about African American experiences.”

I agree.

It’s important to separate the atrocious allegations against Cosby from his one precious and unsoiled commodity: his art collection.

What do you think?
