Created in 1975 to compensate for a persistent segregation of the art world along racial lines, the museum has presented exhibitions on pressing issues---homelessness, media hype, the environment and ethnic- and gender-based stereotyping---that explore the definitions and boundaries of art. Today the museum exists soley online. Prior shows at the physical museum featured the early work of many of today's foremost artists, among them Andres Serrano, David Hammonds and Nancy Spero.
