"As an alum, I am dismayed that Wellesley College and the Davis Museum prioritized provocative publicity over sensitivity to students and solidarity with survivors of sexual assault. I am particularly disappointed by the (white male) artist’s dismissal of our concerns as ’baggage’ (quoted in the Boston Globe on 2/6/14)."
