The chairwoman and vice chairwoman of the Bronx Museum of the Arts’ board of trustees have resigned. While the institution has been working to reach a broader audience and bring in more revenue, some high-level executives believe that recent initiatives have strayed from the museum’s local mission. One of the institution's most talked-about endeavors is a collaboration with the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana. The two museums planned to exchange artworks, but the project was delayed in June as Cuba feared that art sent to the U.S. could be seized.
