In July, the American Museum Alliance, and estimated One-Third Of U.S. Museums May Not Survive The Year *
American museums employ nearly three-quarters of a million people from visitor staff to curators. With so many jobs lost or in jeopardy, organizations like Museum Workers Speak have organized relief funds to support the community.
As a museum worker myself, I’m trying to do my part by selling riso prints representing museums of the future. 100% of the profits will go towards the Museum Workers Relief Fund, which provides funds to museum workers experiencing hardships. Many of my peers have lost their job due to the pandemic, and I want to do what I can to support my colleagues across other institutions.
