“On Thursday, the Met released a short statement saying that ‘seven named exhibition spaces in the Museum, including the wing that houses the iconic Temple of Dendur, will no longer carry the Sackler name.’ It was not the first museum to take such action (the Louvre had already done so), nor was it the first major American institution (Tufts University took the name down in 2018, followed by New York University last year). But the Met is in a class of its own. Not only is it the premier art museum in the United States, it is the museum with which the Sackler family has the longest history.” The New Yorker: An Astounding List of Artists Helped Persuade the Met to Remove the Sackler Name.
