Comment on Oakland Museum of California Apologizes by towdesign

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 06:40:49 +0000

It is of the utmost importance that the mistakes of the past stay in the past. The point of Dorothea Lang's work was to show the injustice. The docent obviously miss the point of the exhibit. Especially in our great bay area we are diverse and I expect to live in a diverse society now and in the future. We as Californians now more than ever must show our strength as diverse human beings. I am proud that Ms. Shintani spoke up. A museum is a perfect place to show our commitment to a better future for all human beings. Sincerely, Terry Ow-Wing

Thank you Lori. I appreciate your response and that you "heard" my concerns. The letter you emailed me had some interesting ideas I would like to explore. I have faith that the Oakland Museum of California will move forward with making sure your visitors are treated with respect and their interactions with docents will be informative and pleasant.

First, thank you so much for bringing awareness to your very unfortunate and deeply upsetting experience on a tour of the Dorothea Lange exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California. The comments you describe from one of our docents could not be more counter to the Museum’s mission and values, nor to the intent of this exhibition or the vision of Lange herself. In fact, our very goal with this exhibition was to highlight the power of Dorothea Lange’s work in challenging social injustice and to underscore the impact of art in advocating for social change. We comment here publically to reassure you, and the readers of your blog, that we are addressing this issue directly. The Oakland Museum of California cares profoundly about issues of discrimination, racism, and bigotry and sees its mission to lift up these stories and to advance a more equitable and caring community. We are grateful that you “found your activist vocal cords.” And, we are committed to speaking out with you—we know that Dorothea Lange would be right there with you as well. Thank you for making us aware of this upsetting experience, and please accept our sincere apology. Lori Fogarty, CEO & Director, Oakland Museum of California

Great post, Judy. We need to keep shedding light on the false concept of 'the other' and learn from the tragedies of our history.

Judy- I am enjoying reading about your artistic and personal journey while at SFAI. Thank you for taking us with you. New Mexico has a rich history, but I didn't know about the internment camps there. I appreciate all that you are bringing to light. Sending love from the coast, Julie B.

Reblogged this on boondockmom and commented: Sites like this need to be included in the city or county even state list of interests for people to look for and visit. These men are disrespected in the worst way when they were alive. They need better recognition now.
