These artworks from the Museum's collection are installed throughout the fifth-floor galleries and The Agnes Gund
Garden Lobby to affirm the ideals of welcome and freedom as vital to this Museum, as they are to the United States. They
are by artists from nations whose citizens are being denied entry into the United States, according to a presidential
executive order issued on January 27, 2017.
