CONTENT DISCLAIMER

At MoPOP, we believe we have a responsibility to shine a light on difficult truths, especially in pop culture. We feel this focus provides context and a chance for reflection, understanding, and dialogue about how we can all be better—exactly the kinds of conversations we’re meant to engage in as an educational institution.

How this translates into our responsibilities as a museum—and how our exhibitions directly address these challenges—is something we constantly grapple with. As an example, the BLM signage in Massive: The Power of Pop Culture might bring strong feelings from those viewing them, something visitors may not have anticipated when entering the museum.

Should you encounter strong feelings regarding content, we invite you to, within your capacity that day, recognize your feelings and stay in the experience. This can include remaining with the content in question or moving on to another more comfortable artifact or dialogue in the larger educational environment.
