The Davis Museum at Wellesley College, in protest of President Trump's proposed travel ban, has removed 120 artworks from their galleries as part of the their larger "Art-Less" initiative which demonstrates the critical role that immigrants have played in the arts. According museum director, Lisa Fischman, the speed of the action was made possible by the three year research effort for the recent re-installation of the permanent collection.
