To what degree are cultural institutions responsible for vetting every dollar they receive? Can financially strapped arts organizations be picky about a patron’s source of wealth, and if so, where should they draw the line? At a donor who engages in unlawful or unethical behavior? Or whose conduct is at odds with the institution’s goals?
"Gifts Tied to Opioid Sales Invite a Question: Should Museums Vet Donors?" is from the December 01, 2017 Entertainment section of The New York Times. It was written by Colin Moynihan and narrated by Kristi Burns.
