    "It is a challenging time for museums, galleries, and educational institutions as public funding is dwindling and there is a shift to corporate and private patronage. With this also comes a corporate style of management that focuses on measurable outcomes.  This can counter the trend to decolonize and democratize art institutions through the lens of education and social/public programs.
