Ratner canceling shows?

I'm hearing from artists who have received a call from the Ratner Museum telling them that all shows after September have been cancelled?

Anyone know what's going on?

Artist Opportunities Spring 2013

Visual Arts: One Million Bones
Deadline: Ongoing
One Million Bones is a large-scale social arts practice, which means we use education and hands-on artmaking to raise awareness of genocides and atrocities going on around the world, this very day. We are collecting artwork bones for a collaborative installation of 1,000,000 bones on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. from June 8th-10th, 2013. This installation will serve as a collaborative site of conscience to remember victims and survivors, and as a visible petition to raise awareness of the issue and call upon our government to take much needed and long overdue action. We need more bones! We are looking for individuals, groups, and organizations to host bone making events! For more information, contact Kathleen McEuen at Kathleen@onemillionbones.org
