On Oct. 28, the Baltimore Museum of Art announced it would pause the sale of three works by Brice Marden, Clyfford Still, and Andy Warhol in response to criticism both from within the BMA and the greater art world. The museum planned to use the proceeds from the sale of the three paintings to fund an Endowment for the Future, which would be dedicated to diversity initiatives and pay equity.
