The sanctions, approved by the association’s board, mean that museums belonging to the AAMD, a professional organization with 243 members, have been asked to “refrain from lending [to] or borrowing works of art” from either La Salle or Berkshire “and to also refrain from collaborating with either institution on exhibitions.”
